iowa gears up for court case

The Des Moines Register has a good primer for the Iowa Supreme Court same-sex marriage case that begins on Tuesday. Jane Schacter, a Stanford University law professor, explains in the article why the Hawkeye State is a good bet for marriage equality:

Iowa might have been an appealing target, Schacter said, because of the state court’s roster, public opinion polls, and the long process required to enact a constitutional amendment.

“All of these cases are being watched very, very closely,” Schacter said. “There’s not a rush to get a national resolution. There has been a lot of coordination on both sides, because it’s proceeding state-by-state.”
