The three Iowa Supreme Court Justices who were removed from the bench in 2010 after joining in the unanimous ruling that made same-sex marriage legal in Iowa will receive the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. Justices Marsha Ternus, Michael Streit, and Carl Baker will be honored at a ceremony in Washington, DC, in May. They join an impressive and inspiring list of prior recipients of the prestigious award.
Congratulations to Justices Ternus and Baker, and to my dear friend Justice Streit, for this recognition. You make me proud to be a member of the legal profession.
