ALBIA, Iowa (KYOU) - A judge reached his decision in a case over allowing weapons in the Monroe County Courthouse.

Albia resident J.D. Thompson had asked the County Board of Supervisors about the policy regarding weapons in the courthouse building.

Supervisors said no guns are allowed per a rule from the Chief Justice from The State Supreme Court but Thompson and the Iowa Firearms Coalition disagreed.

They said it goes against new state law.

After going to court, a judge ruled for Thompson and the IFC saying the county was in violation of the law.
