Lady Justice sword replaced

MANKATO — Lady Justice has her sword back.

Workers Thursday morning replaced the 6-foot-long sword on the Lady Justice statue atop the Historic Blue Earth County Courthouse in Mankato. The sword fell to the ground after it was damaged in early April when the 11,000 pound statue turned in wind. The statue was earlier rotated back to its proper direction.

Schwickert Co. employees used a large crane to lift two men and the sword up to the statue early Thursday morning.
