DYERSVILLE (TH Media) -

An Iowa District Court judge denied a citizen group’s motion to overturn a ruling that upheld the rezoning of the Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville, Iowa.

Judge Thomas Bitter last week denied the motion from the Residential and Agricultural Advisory Committee.

The group filed a lawsuit against Dyersville city officials claiming that the rezoning of the site, based on plans to build a multi-field sports complex, was improperly carried out. After a trial, Bitter ruled in May that the City of Dyersville did not err in procedure.

Susan Hess, attorney for the citizen group, then filed a motion that sought to “enlarge and amend findings of fact, conclusions of law and order. Bitter’s order said he reviewed Hess’ arguments and his prior ruling and that he denied the motion.
