Important News for Iowa Lawyers

Due to budget cuts, the State of Iowa is closing courthouses for the following days this year:

March 20, April 10, April 24, May 8, May 22, June 5 and June 19, 2009.

Perhaps more importantly, for those of you (us?) out there who sometimes wait until the last minute to file things, be aware that district court clerks’ offices will close to the public at 2:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning March 24th. This order seems to indicate that, if a filing deadline falls on one of those days, the deadline would carry over to the next day. It scares me though.

Be aware, and let’s hope the courts get enough funding for 2009-10.
