ST. PAUL - Minnesota Chief Justice Russell Anderson announced Monday that he will retire on June 1.

Anderson gave his wife's health concerns and his age as reasons to leave the bench.

He is a Bemidji native and served northwestern Minnesota from as a Crookston-based judge.

"It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the people of Minnesota over the last 25 years, first as a district court judge from 1982 to 1998, and as a member of the Supreme Court from 1998 until the present time," Anderson said in a statement. "And I am sincerely grateful for the honor of serving as chief justice during my final years on the court."

Anderson has been chief justice since January of 2006, when Gov. Tim Pawlenty named him to the post.
