Attorney David Lillehaug represents Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton during a hearing to allow the courts to operate if there is no agreement of the state budget by Thursday's deadline, Monday, June 27, 2011, in St. Paul, Minn. With just four days to prevent a government shutdown, Dayton and Minnesota Republican legislative leaders met Monday for more budget talks. All sides have been mum on whether they're making progress toward a budget deal that would avert a shutdown starting Friday. (AP Photo/Richard Sennott, Pool) less
