Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
May 15, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Mitchell County, Colleen D. Weiland, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, C.J., Vaitheswaran, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Vogel, C.J.  (5 pages)

            Robert Walters and Sandi Heter, the objectors, appeal the district court’s ruling on their objection to the final report.  They argue the district court incorrectly determined co-executors, Richard Walters and Shirley Shirley, had not breached their fiduciary duties.  The co-executors argue the district court’s ruling was proper because the objectors have failed to meet their burden of proof.  OPINION HOLDS: On our de novo review, we defer to the district court’s credibility findings and find no credible evidence warranting a disruption of the district court’s ruling.
