ST. PAUL, MN – Governor Tim Walz announced the appointments of Veena Iyer and Jennifer Verdeja as District Court Judges in Minnesota’s Second Judicial District.

“I am honored to appoint Veena Iyer to the Ramsey County bench,” said Governor Walz in a statement. “Her diverse practice background and understanding of the impact that our justice system has on the many communities it serves gives me the confidence that she will be a fair and balanced judge.”

Iyer was also a law clerk for the Honorable Natalie Hudson on the Minnesota Court of Appeals, Susan Burke on the Fourth Judicial District, and Matthew Kennelly on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
