NRO: Iowa Judicial Vacancies Hang in the Balance


Gary Marx at NRO:

According to the Sioux City Journal, by the end of this week Iowa governor Terry Branstad will fill three vacancies on the Iowa Supreme Court. The vacancies are the result of November's election, when the people of Iowa made history by voting to oust all three of the Iowa Supreme Court justices who were up for retention. That vote was highly publicized and represented a broad-based public repudiation of the court’s freewheeling liberal judicial activism on everything from gay marriage to civil justice issues.
