Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jul 24, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Rustin T. Davenport, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (6 pages)

            James Neuman appeals the dismissal of his lawsuit.  OPINION HOLDS: Although we could summarily dismiss the appeal based on Neuman’s violations of our appellate rules, we decline to do so.  We agree with the district court’s well-reasoned analysis and disposition of the case and affirm without further opinion, noting that we cannot grant Neuman the relief he requests even if he succeeded on appeal.
