The Iowa Supreme Court will hear an appeal of the judicial nomination law.   The lawsuit challenges a new state law that changed the way some judges are selected in Iowa.

A state court judge last month dismissed the lawsuit filed by a group of lawyers and Democratic lawmakers against Gov. Kim Reynolds, saying they didn't have legal standing to challenge the law.

The new law gave the governor an additional appointment to the 17-member state judicial nominating commission, meaning the governor will appoint the majority of members.

The federal government could decide this week whether to finalize plans to build a new riverside courthouse in Des Moines, but the 137-million-dollar project continues to face local opposition. The General Services Administration wants to put the new building on the former site of the downtown YMCA. Art Slusark (SLOO-zark), the chief communications officer for Meredith publishing, says putting a government building there would be a missed opportunity for economic development.
