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)(1)(i) For a judgment or award of $50,000 or less or a judgment or award for or against
the state or a political subdivision of the state, regardless of the amount,
or a judgment or
award in a family court action, regardless of the amount, 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 four 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.

This item applies to any section that references section 549.09 by citation for the purposes
of computing an interest rate on any amount owed to or by the state or a political subdivision
of the state, regardless of the amount.

(ii) The court, in a family court action, may order a lower interest rate or no interest rate
if the parties agree or if the court makes findings explaining why application of a lower
interest rate or no interest rate is necessary to avoid causing an unfair hardship to the debtor.
This item does not apply to child support or spousal maintenance judgments subject to
section 548.091.

(2) For a judgment or award over $50,000, other than a judgment or award for or against
the state or a political subdivision of the state or a judgment or award in a family court
action, the interest rate shall be ten percent per year until paid.

(3) 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.

(e) For purposes of this subdivision:

(1) "state" includes a department, board, agency, commission, court, or other entity in
the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the state; and

(2) "political subdivision" includes a town, statutory or home rule charter city, county,
school district, or any other political subdivision of the state.

(e) This section does not apply to a judgment or award upon which interest is entitled
to be recovered under section 60A.0811.

served by mail at the last known address upon any parent or guardian of the juvenile
respondent who is not the petitioner. A temporary restraining order may be entered only
against the respondent named in the petition.

(d) The temporary restraining order is in effect until a hearing is held on the issuance of
a restraining order under subdivision 5. The court shall hold the hearing on the issuance of
a restraining order if the petitioner requests a hearing. The hearing may be continued by the
court upon a showing that the respondent has not been served with a copy of the temporary
restraining order despite the exercise of due diligence or if service is made by published
notice under subdivision 3 and the petitioner files the affidavit required under that
subdivision.

(e) If the temporary restraining order has been issued and the respondent requests a
hearing, the hearing shall be scheduled by the court upon receipt of the respondent's request.
Service of the notice of hearing must be made upon the petitioner not less than five days
prior to the hearing. The court shall serve the notice of the hearing upon the petitioner by
mail in the manner provided in the Rules of Civil Procedure for pleadings subsequent to a
complaint and motions and shall also mail notice of the date and time of the hearing to the
respondent. In the event that service cannot be completed in time to give the respondent or
petitioner the minimum notice required under this subdivision, the court may set a new
hearing date.

(f) A request for a hearing under this subdivision must be made within 45 20 days after
the temporary restraining order is issued
of the date of completed service of the petition.

than murder committed in violation of clause (1) of section 609.185 who has not been
previously convicted of a felony shall be paroled without having served 20 years, less the
diminution that would have been allowed for good conduct had the sentence been for 20
years;

(2) no inmate serving a life sentence for committing murder before May 1, 1980, who
has been previously convicted of a felony or though not previously convicted of a felony
is serving a life sentence for murder in the first degree committed in violation of clause (1)
of section 609.185 shall be paroled without having served 25 years, less the diminution
which would have been allowed for good conduct had the sentence been for 25 years;

(3) any inmate sentenced prior to September 1, 1963, who would be eligible for parole

(4) any new rule or policy or change of rule or policy adopted by the commissioner of
corrections which has the effect of postponing eligibility for parole has prospective effect
only and applies only with respect to persons committing offenses after the effective date
of the new rule or policy or change.

(b) Upon being paroled and released, an inmate is and remains in the legal custody and
under the control of the commissioner, subject at any time to be returned to a facility of the
Department of Corrections established by law for the confinement or treatment of convicted
persons and the parole rescinded by the commissioner.

(c) The written order of the commissioner of corrections, is sufficient authority for any
peace officer, state correctional investigator, or state parole and probation agent to retake
and place in actual custody any person on parole or supervised release. In addition, when
it appears necessary in order to prevent escape or enforce discipline, any state parole and
probation agent or state correctional investigator may, without order of warrant, take and
detain a parolee or person on supervised release or work release and bring the person to the
commissioner for action.

(d) The written order of the commissioner of corrections is sufficient authority for any
peace officer, state correctional investigator, or state parole and probation agent to retake
and place in actual custody any person on probation under the supervision of the
commissioner pursuant to section 609.135. Additionally, when it appears necessary in order
to prevent escape or enforce discipline, any state parole and probation agent or state
correctional investigator may, without an order, retake and detain a probationer and bring
the probationer before the court for further proceedings under section 609.14.

(e) The written order of the commissioner of corrections is sufficient authority for any
peace officer, state correctional investigator, or state parole and probation agent to detain
any person on pretrial release who absconds from pretrial release or fails to abide by the
conditions of pretrial release.

(f) Persons conditionally released, and those on probation under the supervision of the
commissioner of corrections pursuant to section 609.135 may be placed within or outside
the boundaries of the state at the discretion of the commissioner of corrections or the court,
and the limits fixed for these persons may be enlarged or reduced according to their conduct.

(g) Except as otherwise provided in subdivision 1b, in considering applications for
conditional release or discharge, the commissioner is not required to hear oral argument
from any attorney or other person not connected with an adult correctional facility of the
Department of Corrections in favor of or against the parole or release of any inmates. The
commissioner may institute inquiries by correspondence, taking testimony, or otherwise,
as to the previous history, physical or mental condition, and character of the inmate and, to
that end, has the authority to require the attendance of the chief executive officer of any
state adult correctional facility and the production of the records of these facilities, and to
compel the attendance of witnesses. The commissioner is authorized to administer oaths to
witnesses for these purposes.

(h) Unless the district court directs otherwise, state parole and probation agents may
require a person who is under the supervision of the commissioner of corrections to perform
community work service for violating a condition of probation imposed by the court.
Community work service may be imposed for the purpose of protecting the public, to aid
the offender's rehabilitation, or both. Agents may impose up to eight hours of community
work service for each violation and up to a total of 24 hours per offender per 12-month
period, beginning with the date on which community work service is first imposed. The
commissioner may authorize an additional 40 hours of community work services, for a total
of 64 hours per offender per 12-month period, beginning with the date on which community
work service is first imposed. At the time community work service is imposed, parole and
probation agents are required to provide written notice to the offender that states:

(1) the condition of probation that has been violated;

(2) the number of hours of community work service imposed for the violation; and

(3) the total number of hours of community work service imposed to date in the 12-month
period.

An offender may challenge the imposition of community work service by filing a petition
in district court. An offender must file the petition within five days of receiving written
notice that community work service is being imposed. If the offender challenges the
imposition of community work service, the state bears the burden of showing, by a
preponderance of the evidence, that the imposition of community work service is reasonable
under the circumstances.

Community work service includes sentencing to service.

(i) Prior to revoking a nonviolent controlled substance offender's parole or probation
based on a technical violation, when the offender does not present a risk to the public and
the offender is amenable to continued supervision in the community, a parole or probation
agent must identify community options to address and correct the violation including, but
not limited to, inpatient chemical dependency treatment. If a probation or parole agent
determines that community options are appropriate, the agent shall seek to restructure the
offender's terms of release to incorporate those options. If an offender on probation stipulates
in writing to restructure the terms of release, a probation agent must forward a report to the
district court containing:

(1) the specific nature of the technical violation of probation;

(2) the recommended restructure to the terms of probation; and

(3) a copy of the offender's signed stipulation indicating that the offender consents to
the restructuring of probation.

The recommended restructuring of probation becomes effective when confirmed by a
judge. The order of the court shall be proof of such confirmation and amend the terms of
the sentence imposed by the court under section 609.135. If a nonviolent controlled substance
offender's parole or probation is revoked, the offender's agent must first attempt to place
the offender in a local jail. For purposes of this paragraph, "nonviolent controlled substance
offender" is a person who meets the criteria described under section 244.0513, subdivision
2, clauses (1), (2), and (5), and "technical violation" means any violation of a court order
of probation or a condition of parole, except an allegation of a subsequent criminal act that
is alleged in a formal complaint, citation, or petition.

management and budget and paid out of the state treasury
. The commissioner of management
and budget may allow and pay for the necessary expenses incurred by the sheriff, deputy,

for one prisoner, but one additional correctional officer shall be allowed for every two
additional prisoners. All bills shall be in writing, fully itemized, verified, and accompanied
by the receipt of the chief executive officer of the facility for the delivery of the convicted
or adjudicated persons, in a form prescribed by the commissioner of management and
budget.

the conditions imposed on the inmate; or

(2) revoke the inmate's supervised release and reimprison the inmate for the appropriate
period of time.

Prior to revoking a nonviolent controlled substance offender's supervised release based
on a technical violation, when the offender does not present a risk to the public and the
offender is amenable to continued supervision in the community, the commissioner must
identify community options to address and correct the violation including, but not limited
to, inpatient chemical dependency treatment. If the commissioner determines that community
options are appropriate, the commissioner shall restructure the inmate's terms of release to
incorporate those options. If a nonviolent controlled substance offender's supervised release
is revoked, the offender's agent must first attempt to place the offender in a local jail. For
purposes of this subdivision, "nonviolent controlled substance offender" is a person who
meets the criteria described under section 244.0513, subdivision 2, clauses (1), (2), and (5),
and "technical violation" means a violation of a condition of supervised release, except an
allegation of a subsequent criminal act that is alleged in a formal complaint, citation, or
petition.

The period of time for which a supervised release may be revoked may not exceed the
period of time remaining in the inmate's sentence, except that if a sex offender is sentenced
and conditionally released under Minnesota Statutes 2004, section 609.108, subdivision 5,
the period of time for which conditional release may be revoked may not exceed the balance
of the conditional release term.

not limited to, inpatient chemical dependency treatment. If the agency determines that
community options are appropriate, the county probation officer shall recommend a sanction
that incorporates those options. For purposes of this subdivision, "nonviolent controlled
substance offender" is a person who meets the criteria described under section 244.0513,
subdivision 2, clauses (1), (2), and (5).

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. If the court finds that the petitioner has had two or more
previous restraining orders in effect against the same respondent or the respondent has
violated a prior or existing restraining order on two or more occasions, relief granted by the
restraining order may be for a period of up to 50 years. In all other cases, relief granted by
the restraining order must be for a fixed period of not more than two years. When a referee

referee's signature.

(c) An order issued under this subdivision must be personally served upon the respondent.

(d) If the court orders relief for a period of up to 50 years under paragraph (a), the
respondent named in the restraining order may request to have the restraining order vacated
or modified if the order has been in effect for at least five years and the respondent has not
violated the order. Application for relief under this paragraph must be made in the county
in which the restraining order was issued. Upon receipt of the request, the court shall set a
hearing date. Personal service must be made upon the petitioner named in the restraining
order not less than 30 days before the date of the hearing. At the hearing, the respondent
named in the restraining order has the burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence
that there has been a material change in circumstances and that the reasons upon which the
court relied in granting the restraining order no longer apply and are unlikely to occur. If
the court finds that the respondent named in the restraining order has met the burden of
proof, the court may vacate or modify the order. If the court finds that the respondent named
in the restraining order has not met the burden of proof, the court shall deny the request and
no request may be made to vacate or modify the restraining order until five years have
elapsed from the date of denial. An order vacated or modified under this paragraph must
be personally served on the petitioner named in the restraining order.
