Case No. 17-0638

Matthew Jahnke
v.
Deere and Company, Richard Czarnecki, and Bernhard Haas

The defendants were granted an interlocutory appeal from the denial of their motion for summary judgment. They argue: (1) the Iowa Civil Rights Act (ICRA), Iowa Code ch. 216, does not apply extraterritorially; and (2) a U.S. citizen working abroad in China is not within the geographic reach of the ICRA.
