    “In his life and career, Judge Cervantes has demonstrated a strong commitment to justice,” said Governor Dayton. “His exemplary service to the State of Minnesota and his direct service to the people of his community have prepared him well for this new position. I am confident that Judge Cervantes will be an outstanding addition to the Workers’ Compensation Court of Appeals.”
