In 2011,  a suit was brought against the Minnesota Sex Offender Program (MSOP) in Federal District Court.  We have posted a position statement following the ruling from Hon. Donovan Frank, U.S. District Judge, District of Minnesota, finding the commitment process to be unconstitutional.  MnATSA supports the efforts of the Staff of MSOP in their clinical work with very challenging clients.  Our position addresses the legal and political issues of the case, not the clinical adequacy.
