The Iowa Supreme Court has hired the law firm of Faegre Baker Daniels to conduct an independent investigation into the Sept. 11 arrest in the Dallas County Courthouse of two individuals and the Sept. 9 alleged break-in at the Polk County Courthouse. Both events appear to have happened during security testing exercises to help the Iowa Judicial Branch ensure the court’s highly sensitive data was secured against attack.
