In 1914, Clara Eva Hardenbrook’s attorney was Gustavus Loevinger, an attorney then officing from the Germania Life Insurance Building. He had been practicing since 1907 and had tried a few small cases, but nothing as head-line grabbing as Clara’s suit against the City of Saint Paul. The suit argued that because Clara had been denied the vote, the city’s entire election should be deemed anti-democratic and the results thrown out.
Gustavus Loevinger practiced law until 1931, when he was appointed to the Ramsey County District Court. As a judge, he was known for his modern and progressive approach.
