Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Jeffrey L. Larson, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Vogel, C.J.  (5 pages)

            Richard Coberly appeals from the grant of summary judgment in favor of Carolyn Mils and Lisa Green after the district court found his petition was barred by claim preclusion.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Richard did not assert a defense that his debt was paid in the prior small claims action, we agree with the district court that his repackaged claim of fraud and conversion of funds is barred by claim preclusion.  Summary judgment was appropriate, and we therefore affirm.
