Case No. 21-0900

Michael Savala
v.
State of Iowa, Iowa Department of Corrections, and Jerry Bartruff, Individually and In His Official Capacity

Plaintiff appeals the judgment entered on a defense verdict in his action alleging employment discrimination on the basis of age, race, color, and national origin. Plaintiff contends the absence of minorities on his jury panel was prima facie evidence of systematic underrepresentation and the district court erred in denying his request to make a record in support of a fair-cross-section challenge to the jury pool.
