SIOUX CITY MAN WANTS JUSTICES TO LEAVE BENCH

SIOUX CITY—Conservative activist Bob Vander Plaats says he may back efforts to impeach the four remaining Iowa Supreme Court justices who participated in a ruling legalizing same-sex marriage in the state if they don’t agree to his demands that they leave the bench voluntarily. Vander Plaats says voters were offering a judgment on the entire court when they ousted three justices last month because of the court’s decision striking down a ban on same-sex marriage. He says the remaining four justices should listen to that message and step down. Vander Plaats spoke during a taping of Iowa Public Television’s “Iowa Press” program airing next week. Vander Plaats says the justices should use next month’s annual report on the condition of the state’s court system as a vehicle for announcing their resignations.
