Justice Marsha Ternus on Judicial Restoration

Nov 7, 2013

Marsha Ternus was the first woman to serve as chief justice of the Iowa Supreme Court, but she's perhaps best known as one of the Iowa Supreme Court justices dismissed by Iowa voters three years ago, for her role in the decision that legalized same-sex marriage in the state. Host Ben Keiffer sits down with Ternus to get her thoughts on that ruling, and on justice and judicial independence in the U.S.

Ternus will be in Iowa City on November 12, as part of the University of Iowa lecture series. Her talk is called “Restoring Justice in the U.S.” and it will be held in the Old Capitol Senate Chamber, at 7:30 pm.
