Abstract

Iowans depend on their courts. At any given moment, an allegation of abuse may place the health, safety, and well-being of a child, the rights of a parent, and the future of a family in the hands of a judge. At the same moment, an Iowa court may be starting a jury trial involving serious criminal charges. Another court may be hearing a case involving a complex agricultural or business dispute, or a difficult divorce involving children. In the hundreds of thousands of such matters that come before Iowa courts each year, we must ensure that we administer justice to all Iowans equally.
