March 6th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Justices of the Iowa Supreme Court plan to be in Council Bluffs on Wednesday evening and Thursday. They will hear arguments in two cases, visit seven high schools, and speak at the local community college. The court will hold a special session at Iowa Western Community College to hear oral arguments in two cases. The session, which is open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday. In the first case, a nude dancing business in Hamburg is challenging a 2008 city ordinance regulating such businesses. The second case involves the American Civil Liberties Union, which wants to find out details of disciplinary action taken against two Atlantic School district employees after a strip search was conducted of five students in 2009. The school visits are scheduled for Thursday.
