Viewing James M. Goodhue: "A Caution to Frontier Lawyers." (1850)
On February 14, 1850, Judge David Cooper fined Michael E. Ames and Morton S. Wilkinson $5 each for something they did in his courtroom in Stillwater. It is probable that they were the first lawyers in Minnesota to be disciplined. Reports of this event appeared in the February 20 and March 6, 1850, issues of "The Minnesota Pioneer."
