            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Madison County, Bradley McCall, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, P.J., Tabor, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Vogel, P.J.  (7 pages)

            Kelly Kohrs-Manriques brought suit against Tamelia Brown, as owner of a tavern, and Lowell Bence, as mortgagor of the property.  Kohrs-Manriques claimed Brown’s transfer of the property to Bence was a fraudulent conveyance, designed to place the property out of her reach as a judgment creditor.  The district court considered the factors of a fraudulent conveyance and found Kohrs-Manriques did not establish, by clear and convincing evidence, the transfer was fraudulent.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the district court applied the correct standard and Kohrs-Manriques had not proved by clear and convincing evidence that a fraudulent conveyance occurred.
