The Iowa Supreme Court has issued an order closing all state court offices on Feb. 16 to save money during tough budget times.
Court officials say the day of unpaid leave will affect about 1,600 employees and save more than $335,000.
Judges and magistrates are the only court employees who will work on the furlough day. That's because their salaries are set by the Legislature and handled separately.
Court officials say the closure is in response to an expected reduction in their budget.
The furlough is planned for President's Day, a federal holiday, when officials expect less impact on the public because other government agencies are closed.
