Kevin Lindsey, an assistant Ramsey County attorney, today was named Minnesota human rights commissioner by Gov. Mark Dayton.

Lindsey has more that 15 years of experience in handling legal issues concerning human services, housing, employment and civil litigation, according to the governor's staff.

The Human Rights Department investigates charges of illegal discrimination and ensures that businesses seeking state contracts comply with equal opportunity requirements.

"Kevin is a respected lawyer and advocate with deep experience in the community working on issues of fairness in the workplace and in the community," Dayton said in a press release. "He will be a strong, professional voice in the Dayton administration."

Lindsey said he would strive to make Minnesota discrimination-free.

He received his bachelor's and law degrees from the University of Iowa. He practiced with two Twin Cities law firms and for a private company before joining the Ramsey County attorney's office.
