WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar today released the following statement on the passing of Rosalie Wahl, the first woman to become a Minnesota Supreme Court Justice.

“Rosalie Wahl was a courageous and compassionate woman who brought a strong sense of justice and pioneering spirit to everything she did. Her journey was not an easy one, but her grit, intellect and dedication to the values she upheld led her to become the first woman to serve on Minnesota’s Supreme Court. As a former prosecutor, I traveled on the trail that Rosalie blazed and I know her impact will be felt for generations to come.”
