Benshoof named one of ’50 over 50′

Judge Paul Benshoof was named to the Minnesota AARP chapter’s 50 over 50 list.

The list, according to the article in “Pollen Midwest,” celebrates and recognizes Minnesotans over the age of 50 who have made significant contributions and achievements in their communities.

Benshoof, who is 68-years-old, has served in the Beltrami County courts for 22 years.

In the article, Benshoof is credited with leading the formation of the Beltrami County Domestic Violence Court and has served as a leader of Beltrami County’s Children’s Justice Initiative.

Benshoof also advocates for the hard-of-hearing, and has spoken at numerous conferences about what judges and others can do to ensure that the rights of the deaf or hard-of-hearing are protected by the judicial system.

A celebration event will be held tomorrow in Minneapolis.
