Law alum and Alabama justice to discuss judicial integrity, controversy Feb. 14

Harold See, a justice on the Alabama Supreme Court and University of Iowa law alumnus, will discuss judicial integrity and serving on the court during a time of controversy when he speaks at the UI College of Law at 12:40 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14 in Room 235 of the Boyd Law Building. More information is available by calling 319-335-9034.

See, a 1973 graduate of the UI College of Law, was elected an associate justice on the court in 1997 and served during the tenure of Chief Justice Roy Moore, who generated controversy when he refused a federal judge's order to remove a granite carving of the Ten Commandments from the state's judicial building. The Alabama judicial ethics panel eventually removed Moore from the court for his refusal in 2003. See will discuss the issue, and how the state's Supreme Court went about its business in the midst of the controversy.
