Statements from Chief Justice Mark Cady and Justice David
Moines, November 7, 2012—
From Chief Justice Cady:
I wish to
thank all Iowans who voted to retain the justices and judges around the state
for another term. This is an important moment in the history of Iowa's courts.
Yesterday, Iowans came together in support of a fair and impartial court
system. Today, the full court will continue its work to resolve disputes fairly
and impartially based upon the facts of the case and the rule of law and to
provide support for Iowa's exceptional court system and its employees.
I also want
to acknowledge and thank all the different organizations and those individual
Iowans, from across the political spectrum and from different walks of life,
who worked tirelessly over the past few months in support of our courts.
From Justice Wiggins
I want to
thank everybody who worked so hard to keep politics out of our courts, and I
want to thank the people of Iowa who preserved the fairness and impartiality of
Iowa's courts and agree that equal means equal.
