Coralville Courier: Law school conference examines legal issues of Postville raid

Excerpted from this post at Coralville Courier

When federal agents raided the Agriprocessors plant in Postville last
spring, they tied up a knot of legal issues that still hasn't been
undone. The most obvious issue is immigration law, since all of the
300-plus workers arrested at the plant were from other countries, many
of them in the United States without proper documentation. But the
issues at work go well beyond immigration law and include elements of
labor law, workplace safety, child labor law and criminal trial
procedure. The University of Iowa College of Law will examine those
and other Postville-related legal issues when it hosts a professional
development program on Friday, Nov. 14. The program, "Postville
Unpacked," runs from 1 to 5:15 p.m. in Boyd Law Building.
