Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
17-1302
Date Published:
Feb 06, 2019
Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Paul D. Scott, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED.  Heard by Doyle, P.J., and Mullins and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by McDonald, J.  (6 pages)

            Gabriel Wilson appeals the decree dissolving his marriage to Elizabeth Wilson.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court did not abuse its discretion in denying Gabriel’s motion to reopen the record.  The district court equitably divided the marital property, however, the division is modified to correct a typographical error in the court’s order.  The district court did not err in failing to preserve a separate tort action against Elizabeth.  Elizabeth is not awarded attorney fees.
