The Iowa Supreme Court will hear oral arguments from attorneys in the case of State of Iowa v. Kenneth Osborne Ary in Ames, Iowa, March 2. The hearing is open to the public and begins at 7 p.m. in the Ames High School Auditorium at 1921 Ames High Drive.

A court of appeals decision reversed and remanded previous drug-delivery convictions based on an alleged error in the jury selection process. The state contends that existing case law does not allow a presumption that an entire jury can be biased based on comments from one juror. 

Following the hearing, justices will participate in a public reception hosted by the Story County Bar Association in the school’s media center.
