Email

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota judge has ordered the state Department of Human Services to restart background checks for those who work with vulnerable populations as the state's government shutdown reaches its seventh day.

Ramsey County Chief Judge Kathleen Gearin also ruled Thursday that several services should continue, including emergency aid programs and blind training.

But she denied a request from a program that helps developmentally disabled people find housing.
