Iowa Supreme Court hires law firm for independent investigation

September 20, 2019

The Iowa Supreme Court has hired the law firm of Faegre Baker Daniels to conduct an independent investigation into the September 11, 2019, arrest in the Dallas County Courthouse of two individuals and the September 9, 2019, alleged break-in at the Polk County Courthouse. Both events appear to have happened during security testing exercises to help the Iowa Judicial Branch ensure the court’s highly sensitive data was secured against attack.

Faegre Baker Daniels attorneys Nicholas A. Klinefeldt, Des Moines, and Paul Luehr, Minneapolis, will lead the investigation. Counsel to the Chief Justice Molly Kottmeyer will serve as the liaison between the attorneys and the judicial branch.
