Ousted Floyd County attorney testifies at hearing


FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) -- Lawyers for former Floyd County attorney Jesse Marzen have argued before a judge during a hearing over his removal from office.

The Waterloo-Cedar Fall Courier reports a judge will rule after Wednesday's hearing if the county's board of supervisors acted properly when it removed Marzen from office earlier this year. Floyd County supervisors declared the county attorney's office vacant after Marzen's law license was suspended by the Iowa Supreme Court.

The court ruled he broke the rules when he engaged in a sexual relationship with a client before his election in 2006.

The hearing was held at the Webster County courthouse in Fort Dodge on a change of venue. The judge expects a ruling in about a week. Marzen was the only witness during the proceedings.
