David Sinclair Bouschor, Retired Judge, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in judiciary work.

Inspired by his father, who was a judge and practiced law at the same time, a young Judge Bouschor knew that he, too, would enter the field of law. He earned a Bachelor of Science from Northwestern University in 1952, a Juris Doctorate from the William Mitchell College of Law in 1958, and was admitted to the Minnesota bar that same year. Immediately upon graduating, Judge Bouschor established a sole practice in Duluth, Minnesota, and worked as a city attorney in Proctor, Minnesota, from 1960 to 1976. He left his sole practice in 1977 to serve as a judge in Duluth within the county of St. Louis, Minnesota, until 1978 when he served as a judge for the Minnesota District Court in Duluth until his retirement in 1995.

In addition to his primary endeavors, Judge Bouschor served of counsel for the Proctor Public Utilities Board, the Proctor School District, was a special municipal judge City of Duluth, and a judicial officer for the County of St. Louis. He has been a past president for the Duluth Association for Children with Learning Disabilities, a past chairman United Day Activity Center, on the board of governors for the St. Andrew Society of Minnesota, a member of the advancement board of the Salvation Army in Duluth, and a past member of the St. Louis Historical Society. As a testament to his achievements, Judge Bouschor has been honored with the Order of the Purple Cross, has been named an Outstanding Eagle Scout by the Boy Scouts of America, and has been featured in the 10th and 11th editions of Who’s Who in American Law as well as the 22nd edition of Who’s Who in the Midwest.

Judge Bouschor has enjoyed a superb reputation on the bench and was inducted to City of Procter Hall of Family as City Attorney in 1959. He thoroughly enjoyed helping people throughout the course of his career and preferred trying cases from the beginning in hopes of getting them resolved as opposed to simply reading briefs of the cases. Though he is grateful for his time in the field of law, Judge Bouschor is now trying to lessen his activity civically so that someone younger and new can continue his work. He is fortunate to have achieved his goals and hopes the next generation of legal professionals will also accomplish the goals they set. Judge Bouschor believes success is being satisfied with what one has done, leaving behind a legacy of goodness, and being a good father to his three children as well as an excellent grandfather to his seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
