Gov. Branstad's Lawyer Tries to Dismiss Lawsuit

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Lawyers for Gov. Terry Branstad want a discrimination lawsuit against the governor dismissed in federal court.

Branstad's attorneys appeared Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Des Moines. They say the lawsuit filed by Iowa Workers Compensation Commissioner Christopher Godfrey this year is similar to a suit he filed in state court last year.

Branstad's attorney George A. LaMarca says the case has been in the state court system for 18 months and this is "another bite at the apple."

But attorney Roxanne Conlin, who is representing Godfrey, says the systems are different.

Godfrey claims Branstad discriminated against him by cutting his salary after he declined to quit his job, and that he was singled out because he is gay. The state suit is currently on hold.
