Former Agent Hedlund Goes to Court

DES MOINES, IA (AP) -- The veteran Iowa criminal investigator fired after reporting Gov. Terry Branstad's speeding SUV appeared in court over his wrongful dismissal lawsuit.
   Larry Hedlund was in Polk County District Court on Wednesday as a judge considered an effort from the state to have the lawsuit thrown out.
   Hedlund, a former Division of Criminal Investigation agent from Fort Dodge, is suing his former superiors for wrongful termination. He alleges that he was removed from duty and fired in retaliation for initiating a pursuit in which a vehicle carrying Branstad was clocked traveling 84 mph but not stopped.
   Branstad has denied retaliation. Department officials say Hedlund was fired for insubordination, which he denies.
   No action was taken Wednesday on the state's motion to dismiss the case.
