Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Oct 24, 2018

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dickinson County, David C. Larson, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Doyle, J., and Blane, S.J.  Opinion by Blane, S.J.  (10 pages)

            Nine years after the district court erroneously assessed Beau Tremaine Berge court costs in dismissed criminal cases, he challenged the assessment of those costs, which the district court denied.  OPINION HOLDS: On this discretionary review, because of legal precedent, Berge’s own failure to timely challenge the assessments, and his later agreement in a contempt proceeding to pay the costs, we find the district court properly denied Berge’s challenge and affirm.
