Sec. 5.

Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 595.02, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

Competency of witnesses.

Every person of sufficient understanding,
including a party, may testify in any action or proceeding, civil or criminal, in court or
before any person who has authority to receive evidence, except as provided in this
subdivision:

(a) A husband cannot be examined for or against his wife without her consent, nor a
wife for or against her husband without his consent, nor can either, during the marriage or
afterwards, without the consent of the other, be examined as to any communication made
by one to the other during the marriage. This exception does not apply to a civil action or
proceeding by one against the other, nor to a criminal action or proceeding for a crime
committed by one against the other or against a child of either or against a child under the
care of either spouse, nor to a criminal action or proceeding in which one is charged with
homicide or an attempt to commit homicide and the date of the marriage of the defendant
is subsequent to the date of the offense, nor to an action or proceeding for nonsupport,
neglect, dependency, or termination of parental rights.

(b) An attorney cannot, without the consent of the attorney's client, be examined as
to any communication made by the client to the attorney or the attorney's advice given
thereon in the course of professional duty; nor can any employee of the attorney be
examined as to the communication or advice, without the client's consent.

(c) A member of the clergy or other minister of any religion shall not, without the
consent of the party making the confession, be allowed to disclose a confession made to
the member of the clergy or other minister in a professional character, in the course of
discipline enjoined by the rules or practice of the religious body to which the member of
the clergy or other minister belongs; nor shall a member of the clergy or other minister of
any religion be examined as to any communication made to the member of the clergy or
other minister by any person seeking religious or spiritual advice, aid, or comfort or advice
given thereon in the course of the member of the clergy's or other minister's professional
character, without the consent of the person.

(d) A licensed physician or surgeon, dentist, or chiropractor shall not, without the
consent of the patient, be allowed to disclose any information or any opinion based thereon
which the professional acquired in attending the patient in a professional capacity, and
which was necessary to enable the professional to act in that capacity; after the decease
of the patient, in an action to recover insurance benefits, where the insurance has been
in existence two years or more, the beneficiaries shall be deemed to be the personal
representatives of the deceased person for the purpose of waiving this privilege, and no
oral or written waiver of the privilege shall have any binding force or effect except when
made upon the trial or examination where the evidence is offered or received.

(e) A public officer shall not be allowed to disclose communications made to the
officer in official confidence when the public interest would suffer by the disclosure.

(f) Persons of unsound mind and persons intoxicated at the time of their production
for examination are not competent witnesses if they lack capacity to remember or to relate
truthfully facts respecting which they are examined.

(g) A registered nurse, psychologist, consulting psychologist, or licensed social
worker engaged in a psychological or social assessment or treatment of an individual
at the individual's request shall not, without the consent of the professional's client, be
allowed to disclose any information or opinion based thereon which the professional has
acquired in attending the client in a professional capacity, and which was necessary to
enable the professional to act in that capacity. Nothing in this clause exempts licensed
social workers from compliance with the provisions of sections 626.556 and 626.557.

(h) An interpreter for a person disabled in communication shall not, without the
consent of the person, be allowed to disclose any communication if the communication
would, if the interpreter were not present, be privileged. For purposes of this section, a
"person disabled in communication" means a person who, because of a hearing, speech
or other communication disorder, or because of the inability to speak or comprehend the
English language, is unable to understand the proceedings in which the person is required
to participate. The presence of an interpreter as an aid to communication does not destroy
an otherwise existing privilege.

(i) Licensed chemical dependency counselors shall not disclose information or
an opinion based on the information which they acquire from persons consulting them
in their professional capacities, and which was necessary to enable them to act in that
capacity, except that they may do so:

(1) when informed consent has been obtained in writing, except in those
circumstances in which not to do so would violate the law or would result in clear and
imminent danger to the client or others;

(2) when the communications reveal the contemplation or ongoing commission
of a crime; or

(3) when the consulting person waives the privilege by bringing suit or filing charges
against the licensed professional whom that person consulted.

(j) A parent or the parent's minor child may not be examined as to any communication
made in confidence by the minor to the minor's parent. A communication is confidential if
made out of the presence of persons not members of the child's immediate family living
in the same household. This exception may be waived by express consent to disclosure
by a parent entitled to claim the privilege or by the child who made the communication
or by failure of the child or parent to object when the contents of a communication are
demanded. This exception does not apply to a civil action or proceeding by one spouse
against the other or by a parent or child against the other, nor to a proceeding to commit
either the child or parent to whom the communication was made or to place the person or
property or either under the control of another because of an alleged mental or physical
condition, nor to a criminal action or proceeding in which the parent is charged with a
crime committed against the person or property of the communicating child, the parent's
spouse, or a child of either the parent or the parent's spouse, or in which a child is charged
with a crime or act of delinquency committed against the person or property of a parent
or a child of a parent, nor to an action or proceeding for termination of parental rights,
nor any other action or proceeding on a petition alleging child abuse, child neglect,
abandonment or nonsupport by a parent.

(k) Sexual assault counselors may not be deleted text begincompelled to testify aboutdeleted text endnew text begin allowed to
disclose
new text end any opinion or information received from or about the victim without the consent
of the victim. However, a counselor may be compelled to identify or disclose information
in investigations or proceedings related to neglect or termination of parental rights if the
court determines good cause exists. In determining whether to compel disclosure, the
court shall weigh the public interest and need for disclosure against the effect on the
victim, the treatment relationship, and the treatment services if disclosure occurs. Nothing
in this clause exempts sexual assault counselors from compliance with the provisions
of sections 626.556 and 626.557.

"Sexual assault counselor" for the purpose of this section means a person who has
undergone at least 40 hours of crisis counseling training and works under the direction
of a supervisor in a crisis center, whose primary purpose is to render advice, counseling,
or assistance to victims of sexual assault.

(l) A person cannot be examined as to any communication or document, including
worknotes, made or used in the course of or because of mediation pursuant to an
agreement to mediate. This does not apply to the parties in the dispute in an application
to a court by a party to have a mediated settlement agreement set aside or reformed.
A communication or document otherwise not privileged does not become privileged
because of this paragraph. This paragraph is not intended to limit the privilege accorded
to communication during mediation by the common law.

(m) A child under ten years of age is a competent witness unless the court finds that
the child lacks the capacity to remember or to relate truthfully facts respecting which the
child is examined. A child describing any act or event may use language appropriate for
a child of that age.

(n) A communication assistant for a telecommunications relay system for
communication-impaired persons shall not, without the consent of the person making the
communication, be allowed to disclose communications made to the communication
assistant for the purpose of relaying.

Restraining order.

(a) The court may grant a restraining order ordering
the respondent to cease or avoid the harassment of another person or to have no contact
with that person if all of the following occur:

(1) the petitioner has filed a petition under subdivision 3;

(2) the sheriff has served respondent with a copy of the temporary restraining order
obtained under subdivision 4, and with notice of the right to request a hearing, or service
has been made by publication under subdivision 3, paragraph (b); and

(3) the court finds at the hearing that there are reasonable grounds to believe that
the respondent has engaged in harassment.

A restraining order may be issued only against the respondent named in the petition;
except that if the respondent is an organization, the order may be issued against and apply
to all of the members of the organization. Relief granted by the restraining order must be
for a fixed period of not more than two years. When a referee presides at the hearing on
the petition, the restraining order becomes effective upon the referee's signature.

new text begin If the petitioner has had one or more restraining orders in effect against the
respondent, the court may order the respondent to provide the following information to the
court for purposes of service of process: the respondent's home address, the respondent's
employment address, and the names and locations of the respondent's parents, siblings,
children, or other close relatives.
new text end

(b) An order issued under this subdivision must be personally served upon the
respondent.new text begin If personal service cannot be made, the court may order service by alternate
means, or by publication, which publication must be made as in other actions. The
application for alternate service must include the last known location of the respondent;
the petitioner's most recent contacts with the respondent; the last known location of the
respondent's employment; the names and locations of the respondent's parents, siblings,
children, and other close relatives; the names and locations of other persons who are likely
to know the respondent's whereabouts; and a description of efforts to locate those persons.
The court shall consider the length of time the respondent's location has been unknown,
the likelihood that the respondent's location will become known, the nature of the relief
sought, and the nature of efforts made to locate the respondent. The court shall order
service by first class mail, forwarding address requested, to any addresses where there is a
reasonable possibility that mail or information will be forwarded or communicated to the
respondent. The court may also order publication, within or without the state, but only if it
might reasonably succeed in notifying the respondent of the proceeding. Service shall be
deemed complete 14 days after mailing or 14 days after court-ordered publication.

Sec. 19.

Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 549.09, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

When owed; rate.

(a) When a judgment or award is for the recovery
of money, including a judgment for the recovery of taxes, interest from the time of
the verdict, award, or report until judgment is finally entered shall be computed by the
court administrator or arbitrator as provided in paragraph (c) and added to the judgment
or award.

(b) Except as otherwise provided by contract or allowed by law, preverdict,
preaward, or prereport interest on pecuniary damages shall be computed as provided
in paragraph (c) from the time of the commencement of the action or a demand for
arbitration, or the time of a written notice of claim, whichever occurs first, except as
provided herein. The action must be commenced within two years of a written notice of
claim for interest to begin to accrue from the time of the notice of claim. If either party
serves a written offer of settlement, the other party may serve a written acceptance or a
written counteroffer within 30 days. After that time, interest on the judgment or award
shall be calculated by the judge or arbitrator in the following manner. The prevailing
party shall receive interest on any judgment or award from the time of commencement
of the action or a demand for arbitration, or the time of a written notice of claim, or as
to special damages from the time when special damages were incurred, if later, until the
time of verdict, award, or report only if the amount of its offer is closer to the judgment or
award than the amount of the opposing party's offer. If the amount of the losing party's
offer was closer to the judgment or award than the prevailing party's offer, the prevailing
party shall receive interest only on the amount of the settlement offer or the judgment or
award, whichever is less, and only from the time of commencement of the action or a
demand for arbitration, or the time of a written notice of claim, or as to special damages
from when the special damages were incurred, if later, until the time the settlement offer
was made. Subsequent offers and counteroffers supersede the legal effect of earlier offers
and counteroffers. For the purposes of clause (2), the amount of settlement offer must
be allocated between past and future damages in the same proportion as determined by
the trier of fact. Except as otherwise provided by contract or allowed by law, preverdict,
preaward, or prereport interest shall not be awarded on the following:

(1) judgments, awards, or benefits in workers' compensation cases, but not including
third-party actions;

(2) judgments or awards for future damages;

(3) punitive damages, fines, or other damages that are noncompensatory in nature;

(4) judgments or awards not in excess of the amount specified in section 491A.01;
and

(5) that portion of any verdict, award, or report which is founded upon interest, or
costs, disbursements, attorney fees, or other similar items added by the court or arbitrator.

(c) The interest shall be computed as simple interest per annum. The rate of interest
shall be based on the secondary market yield of one year United States Treasury bills,
calculated on a bank discount basis as provided in this section.

On or before the 20th day of December of each year the state court administrator
shall determine the rate from the one-year constant maturity treasury yield for the most
recent calendar month, reported on a monthly basis in the latest statistical release of the
board of governors of the Federal Reserve System. This yield, rounded to the nearest one
percent, or deleted text beginfourdeleted text endnew text begin tennew text end percent, whichever is greater, shall be the annual interest rate during
the succeeding calendar year. The state court administrator shall communicate the interest
rates to the court administrators and sheriffs for use in computing the interest on verdicts
and shall make the interest rates available to arbitrators.

When a judgment creditor, or the judgment creditor's attorney or agent, has received
a payment after entry of judgment, whether the payment is made voluntarily by or on
behalf of the judgment debtor, or is collected by legal process other than execution levy
where a proper return has been filed with the court administrator, the judgment creditor,
or the judgment creditor's attorney, before applying to the court administrator for an
execution shall file with the court administrator an affidavit of partial satisfaction. The
affidavit must state the dates and amounts of payments made upon the judgment after the
most recent affidavit of partial satisfaction filed, if any; the part of each payment that
is applied to taxable disbursements and to accrued interest and to the unpaid principal
balance of the judgment; and the accrued, but the unpaid interest owing, if any, after
application of each payment.

(d) This section does not apply to arbitrations between employers and employees
under chapter 179 or 179A. An arbitrator is neither required to nor prohibited from
awarding interest under chapter 179 or under section 179A.16 for essential employees.
