A recent survey found that lawyers in public-service jobs who made the least money, like public defenders or Legal Aid attorneys, were most likely to report being happy. Do you agree?

Also, an order was handed down from the court concerning STATE OF IOWA, Plaintiff-Appellee-Resister vs. KENDALL LEE WARE, Defendant-Appellant-Applicant.

The cuts to Iowa's judicial branch budget means Iowans can expect closed clerks' offices, major trial delays, delays in child support payment processing, scaling back of family treatment, drug, veterans, mental health and business courts, as well as other significant service reductions.

How can you help? Simply contact your legislator.

"You can be ridiculously effective by taking a few moments to contact your legislators,” says Doug Struyk, ISBA Assistant Legislative Counsel. "As a legislator, if you receive three to four emails on a particular issue, that is a brush fire.” #ISBAReachOut

Due to changes in the way Iowa courts do business, more than 725 court clerks will now have a new job title, judicial specialists. #IowaCourts  
Some employees and lawyers are nervous about the possibility of layoffs and service cuts.

Not only is the judicial branch budget being cut, but now court-appointed counsel reimbursement rates could fall from $65 to $25 per hour for simple misdemeanors due to a new House amendment. Please be sure to contact your Iowa Senator immediately!
