Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Mar 20, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Bradley J. Harris, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, C.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (7 pages)

            Brendan Girschek appeals the amount of the equalization payment the district court determined was due to Janice Marin in the dissolution of the parties’ marriage.  OPINION HOLDS: Upon our review, we cannot say the district court failed to do equity in determining the amount Janice was due in equalizing the distribution of the parties’ marital property.  Accordingly, we affirm the decree and subsequent ruling in all respects.  We award appellate attorney fees to Janice.  Any costs on appeal are assessed to Brendan.
