The Iowa Supreme Court was in Oskaloosa Thursday(9/23). The Court heard oral arguments of an appeal of a case at George Daily Auditorium. Earlier in the day, Chief Justice Susan Christensen spoke to a group of Oskaloosa High School students about the law and pursuing one’s dreams. Justice Christensen talks about the Supreme Court going on the road, so to speak.
“This gives, I think, rural Iowa an opportunity..or some cities that are further away from Des Moines…(a chance) to come and see what we do and how a case is presented to the Iowa Supreme Court. I think it’s a blast. I come from a small community. I’m from Harlan, which is just 5000. And when we go to communities that aren’t huge urban areas, I feel at home.”
On Friday (9/24), various Iowa Supreme Court Justices will speak at William Penn University, as well as schools in Colfax-Mingo, Grinnell and Williamsburg.
