Fence disputes

Has anyone had experience with a farmer/landowner who appealed the decision of the fence viewers

to district court? The farmer appealing the decision has a family member who is attorney, and he is asking for a jury trial.

He lives two counties away. The sheriff delivered a 43-page document to the farmer who is requesting him to build new

fence. What could possibly be gained by a jury trial in district court? In Iowa, I thought fence law was pretty clear, and

the fence viewers would have the final say. Thanks! Cheryl Tevis, SF
