Iowa Supreme Court to hear arguments in Charles City in April
CHARLES CITY — The Iowa Supreme Court will be holding a special session in north-central Iowa next month. Court officials have announced that oral arguments will be held starting at 7 o’clock on Tuesday night April 4th in the Old Charles City Middle School Auditorium at 500 North Grand Avenue. The case that will be heard involves an appeal made by Assumption High School in Davenport. They were found responsible for injuries that a former high school baseball player from Muscatine received when he was struck by a foul ball while standing in an unprotected part of the visitor’s dugout at Assumption’s baseball field in July 2011. The former player suggests the appeal presents important issues regarding the safety of the facilities at which student-athletes participate. The high school says sponsors of sporting events face an avalanche of litigation if the limited-duty rule is discarded in the context of this case. At the conclusion of oral arguments, a public reception with the Supreme Court justices will be held in the cafeteria area of the building.
