The Iowa Supreme Court has scheduled a special evening session on March 4 to hear oral arguments in Godfrey v. State of Iowa, a case in which the state's workers' compensation commissioner sued Gov. Terry Branstad and the state for alleged discrimination. Plaintiff Christopher Godfrey, whose term as workers' compensation commissioner ends April 30, 2015, sued the state on a variety of claims, including violation of his constitutional rights, defamation, and intentional interference with contract. Branstad cut his salary by one-third after Godfrey refused to submit his resignation in July 2011; Godfrey alleged he was being targeted because he is gay.  Proceedings will begin at 7 p.m. in the Supreme Court Courtroom on the fourth floor of the Judicial Branch Building, 1111 E. Court Ave., and will also be streamed live from the Iowa Judicial Branch website.
