About Miles Lord:

This is the story of Miles Lord (1919–2016), who rose from humble beginnings on Minnesota’s Iron Range to become one of the most colorful and powerful judges in the country, described as “an unabashed Prairie populist” and “a live-wire slayer of corporate behemoths.” It is a compelling portrait of a remarkable man and his place in Minnesota and U.S. history.


"An intimate, compelling portrait of a courageous and exceptional man who believed in justice and never backed down." —Jonathan Harr, author of A Civil Action


"Every student of history and lover of justice should read this book. Judge Lord’s biography could have no better author than his clerk, Roberta Walburn, who is also a champion of justice and has fought corporate malfeasance her entire career." —Linda Lipsen, chief executive officer, American Association for Justice
