In this Dec. 13 photo, Judge Patricia Kerr Karasov (left) welcomes Judge Crump, 70, to a surprise retirement/birthday party his wife Faith organized in downtown Minneapolis. Judge Crump was elevated to the bench by former Gov. Rudy Perpich. Judge Crump is most well known for the decision that kept the Minnesota Twins in Minnesota after a threatened relocation. Among the African community in the state, he is the judge that has officiated over many weddings.
