DULUTH, Minn.—Attorneys for former University of Minnesota Duluth women's hockey coach Shannon Miller are arguing that the school's 2014 decision to part ways with the longtime coach "had nothing to do with performance." Rather, the university repeatedly told the five-time national championship-winning coach that the decision to sever ties after 16 seasons was "strictly financial," the attorneys said in a recent legal brief.
DULUTH — A judge urged settlement talks Thursday in the federal discrimination suit brought against the University of Minnesota Duluth by three former women's sports coaches.

WRENSHALL, Minn. — A Carlton County man allegedly carved the word "snitch" into a 17-year-old hostage's chest and circulated a Snapchat photo of the victim tied to a chair with a bag over his head. Scott Kendrick Lindgren, 21, was charged Thursday, May 18, with seven felonies in the alleged kidnapping and assault Monday at his home in Silver Brook Township, near Wrenshall. The teen, who is from Duluth but was not identified by authorities, also suffered serious head injuries and burns to his neck, according to a criminal complaint.
The interception of a FedEx package containing a pound of methamphetamine, a high-speed motorcycle pursuit across the Bong Bridge and a last-ditch effort to escape through a hotel window preceded the arrests of a Superior couple that prosecutors said were "near the top of the pyramid in a lucrative distribution conspiracy" that stretched from Colorado to the Twin Ports.
DULUTH, Minn. — The South St. Louis County DWI Court will receive national recognition Friday, May 5, as one of the top specialty courts in the country.

DULUTH, Minn. — A Duluth man charged in connection with a New Year's Day homicide in Superior, Wis., has waived extradition and is expected to make his first appearance in Douglas County Circuit Court Tuesday, April 25.
