In 2009, the Iowa Supreme Court issued a unanimous decision in Lambda Legal’s lawsuit Varnum v. Brien striking down Iowa’s marriage ban and extending the freedom to marry to gay and lesbian couples. Since then, gay and lesbian couples in Iowa have been able to legally wed.

In response, well-funded antigay groups launched an outright attack on Iowa’s courts and the freedom to marry, resulting in the ousting of three well-respected Iowa Supreme Court justices during a retention election. This mean-spirited campaign was designed to intimidate judges in Iowa and across the nation and fuel a fundamental misunderstanding of the role of the judiciary in our democracy.
