Court holds 'Field Of Dreams' hearing at Keokuk theater

(AP) -

The Iowa Supreme Court chose an appropriate setting for legal arguments about the Field of Dreams movie site -- a theater.

The court frequently holds oral arguments around the state and on Monday night took up a zoning dispute at the Grand Theatre in Keokuk.

Gina Walker Fox, who was in town to visit her mother, told The Hawk Eye newspaper ( ) jokingly that the only thing she'd changed would be to show the movie before the hearing.

The case involved whether the Dyersville City Council acted properly when it rezoned property made famous by the 1989 movie starring Kevin Costner.

A company wants to build a baseball and softball complex near the movie site.

Although they could watch lawyers argue the case, it will be months before the court issues its ruling.
