Abstract

In late September, the Iowa Supreme Court in Bormann v. Board of Supervisors In And For Kossuth County, invalidated an Iowa law designed to preserve agricultural land and provide farmers protection from nuisance lawsuits. The Iowa law allowed counties to designate agricultural areas of at least 300 contiguous acres. Farming operations conducted within a designated area were not subject to nuisance lawsuits if they operated properly.
