Claims law totals nearly $110,000 in payouts

Each year, a joint House-Senate Subcommittee on Claims decides which claims against the state it should fund.

This year's law calls for $109,865.28 in payments in fiscal year 2022.

The largest part of this year’s law is $108,684.65 to Nicholas Peterson who sought relief under the Imprisonment and Exoneration Remedies Act that provides a compensation process for cases where a person is exonerated of a felony for which they were wrongfully incarcerated. He served 572 days in prison and 220 days on supervised release.

The other $1,180.63 is for sentence-to-service and community work service claims under $7,000 and other claims already paid out by the Corrections Department.

Rep. Mary Murphy (DFL-Hermantown) and Sen. Bruce Anderson (R-Buffalo Township) sponsor the law that takes effect July 1, 2021.
