From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The North Dakota Attorney General is the chief legal officer of the North Dakota state government. The current Attorney General is Wayne Stenehjem. The Attorney General's office represents the state government in court cases, and issues opinions of points of law upon request.

History

Since the creation of the office with the state's constitution in 1889, the state has seen a total of 28 Attorneys General. The office has been known to change hands rather quickly; no one has held the office for more than 8 years. The office has been held by the North Dakota Republican Party for a wide majority of its existence; only three of the 28 Attorneys General were from the state's Democratic Party and two Attorney Generals ran on the Non Partisan League-ticket. The Attorney General originally served a two-year term, but this was extended to four in 1964 by a constitutional amendment.
