“Iowa Supreme Court to hear challenge from subpoenaed legislators in voting rights case”

William Morris in the Des Moines Register:

Republican legislators facing subpoenas seeking their emails and other documents will get the chance to make the case to the Iowa Supreme Court that their communications should be private.

Iowa’s highest court has granted a petition by nearly a dozen current and former legislators who are seeking to block the subpoenas by the League of United Latin American Citizens. The group has mounted a legal challenge to a 2021 law imposing new voting restrictions in Iowa, and is seeking messages and reports related to the passage of the law.
