Iowa Supreme Court to hear arguments in 4 cities

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in special sessions at four locations across the state during its upcoming term.

The Des Moines-based court said Monday that justices will travel to hear arguments next month in Iowa City, to Storm Lake in October, to Creston in March and Decorah in April.

The visits build on an outreach campaign that Chief Justice Mark Cady instituted after three justices were ousted by voters following the court's decision to legalize gay marriage in 2009.

In a statement, Cady says the court has visited 13 communities for oral arguments and public receptions in the last three years. He says the visits give justices "a tremendous, first-hand insight into what Iowans expect from their court system now and into the future."
