The Iowa Supreme Court justice who authored the opinion permitting same-sex marriage in the state – and later watched three of his colleagues on the bench fall in retention elections – will be the featured speaker at this year’s Bench/Bar Luncheon during the TBA Annual Convention. Chief Justice Mark Cady will talk about the Varnum v. Brien decision and the attacks that followed from out-of-state groups that targeted the justices for deciding that the state’s statue limiting civil marriage to a union between a man and a woman violated the Iowa Constitution. The luncheon will be at noon on Thursday, June 12, at the Gatlinburg Convention Center. Learn more or register now.
