Gov. Branstad Seeks to Overturn Juvenile Home Ruling
Updated: Friday, February 7 2014, 04:35 PM CST
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) --
Gov. Terry Branstad has asked the Iowa Supreme Court to overturn a district court order to reopen the Iowa Juvenile Home.
Branstad announced his plans Friday. He is being represented by the Iowa Attorney General.
In a press release, Branstad says the children residing at the home in Toledo were not receiving the education and care they needed.
Branstad closed the home in January following allegations that teens were improperly treated and denied a proper education. Four lawmakers then sued Branstad to keep the home open.
A district court judge on Wednesday ordered the state to reopen the home and use funds the Legislature approved to operate it. The 21 girls who had been living at the home now live elsewhere.
