Arnold Award for Distinguished Service and Lifetime Achievement for the District of Minnesota at the 2014 Judicial Conference of the Federal 8th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The award is named in honor of the distinguished Judge Arnold, a former Chief Judge of the Eighth Circuit.

He has tried scores of cases in the state and federal courts, and has prosecuted or defended numerous appeals in the Minnesota Court of Appeals and Supreme Court, as well as in the U.S. Court of Appeals.
