Defendant was convicted for second degree burglary and ordered to pay restitution for property destroyed in a fire that was started during the burglary.  He argued that because he was not convicted of the arson charges brought against him, he should not be made to pay restitution for the property.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that the destruction of the property was directly caused by the burglary. Affirmed.

Plaintiff challenged the trial court's grant of summary judgment for defendant on plaintiff's defamation claim, arguing that there are genuine issues of material fact regarding whether defendant's statement was false and whether it was privileged.  Plaintiff also challenged the grant of summary judgment in favor of defendant on her tortious interference with contract claim.  Defendant was plaintiff's supervisor at a pharmacy.  Plaintiff was terminated after defendant reported that she had a side business that competed with the employer.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals rejected the argument that plaintiff's business did not compete with her employer because its products were distinct and, absent a genuine issue of material fact regarding truth, concluded that defendant's statement was true as a matter  of law.  Affirmed.
