Minn. Supreme Court Justice Lillehaug has throat cancer


Incoming Minnesota Supreme Court Justice David Lillehaug announced Wednesday that he is diagnosed with throat cancer, the Associated Press reports.

Lillehaug said the cancer is highly curable and it will not keep him from serving on the High Court.

He plans to start work on the court Monday morning. He'll undergo treatment in Minneapolis starting in mid-June.

Gov. Mark Dayton and Chief Justice Lorie Gildea are both supportive of his plan.

Dayton appointed Lillehaug, a Minneapolis attorney, in March to replace Justice Paul Anderson, who reached the mandatory retirement age of 70 this month.
