The Iowa Supreme Court in Primetime

By: Administrator on March 4th, 2014

By Ryan Koopmans

Tonight, at 7:00 p.m., the Iowa Supreme Court will hear arguments in Godfrey v. Branstad. The case is interesting, and since the Iowa Supreme Court normally holds its arguments during the day, this  nighttime session gives Central Iowa the rare opportunity to see the justices in action.

There’s also a reception after the arguments that will be attended by the lawyers, the justices, and the law clerks.  So come; bring a date.  And if you have time to spare between now and 7:00, you can peruse the parties’ briefs.
