ABSTRACT
The article offers information about District Court Judge Michael Huppert wherein he has attacked a part of the state franchising bill. The lawsuits that oppose the franchise fees collected were filed against Iowa cities such as Des Moines and Davenport. The plaintiffs argue that the franchise fees are an illegal tax. The ruling of Huppert over one of the cities implied that the state franchise bill does not comply with the law. However, the cities may appeal to the state Supreme Court.
