            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Henry W. Latham II, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, P.J., and Vaitheswaran and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by McDonald, J.  (2 pages)

            John Mitchell appeals the summary dismissal of his application for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: Mitchell’s application in this action was filed nearly thirteen years after issuance of procedendo, which is well beyond the statute of limitations.  No disputed issue of fact would bring Mitchell’s claim within that limitation.  Summary dismissal was proper.
