Iowa Supreme Court Justice Marsha Ternus will be speaking in Fairfield tonight at the Fairfield Arts and Convention center. Rustin Lippincott with the center says she will be giving a speech entitled: The Courts and the Constitution, which will address the constitutional role of the courts and the importance of a fair and impartial judiciary in fulfilling that role. Chief Ternus is one of the Supreme Court justices up for retention that recently gained attention on their ruling on the same sex marriage law in Iowa. He says they worked with the Jefferson County Bar Association to get her to come to Fairfield. He says as far as he knows this is the only presentation she is giving in South East Iowa. The presentation will be at 7:30pm tonight in the Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts. Ternus will be answering questions as well.
