Judge to consider ‘Field of Dreams’ lawsuit

DYERSVILLE (AP) – A judge is considering whether to dismiss a lawsuit involving the new owners of the “Field of Dreams” movie site in eastern Iowa.

Dubuque District Court Judge Monica Ackley heard arguments Wednesday from attorneys for Go the Distance Baseball LLC and the Residential and Agricultural Advisory Committee.

Go the Distance is suing the committee, which is a group of area residents opposing a sports complex planned for the site in Dyersville. Go the Distance filed a petition in October saying the committee interfered with contracts related to the site’s sale.

A committee attorney said the petition lacks specific instances of misconduct. A Go the Distance attorney says there is more than enough information.

Ackley has not yet issued a ruling.
