            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Warren County, Timothy O'Grady, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (12 pages)

            Terry Butler appeals from the district court’s grant of summary judgment dismissing his claims against Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and David Erikson.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court correctly concluded Butler’s claims were barred by issue and claim preclusion.  Butler’s abuse-of-process claim also failed because he failed to provide evidence the defendants used the legal process for an improper purpose.
