Oral Argument Schedule

The Iowa Supreme Court continues to carefully monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, balancing the need to take measures to reduce the spread of the virus with its commitment to conducting business as necessary.  Accordingly, justices and attorneys will conduct November's oral arguments by video conference. As usual, the oral arguments will be live streamed on the Iowa Courts YouTube channel.
