Impeachment proceedings against Iowa SupCo justices

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Five members of the Iowa House have filed resolutions to impeach four Iowa Supreme Court justices.  The four justices had joined their colleagues in a 2009 ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in Iowa.  Voters removed three of the justices in November, and they have been replaced.  The resolutions say Justices Mark Cady, David Wiggins, Daryl Hecht and Brent Appel overstepped judicial bounds because such a decision should have been reserved for the Legislature.
