Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 29, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, David P. Odekirk, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (3 pages)

            Thomas Holmes appeals from the dismissal of his application for postconviction relief.  He asserts the district court convicted and sentenced him under nonexistent sections of the Iowa Code.  OPINION HOLDS: Holmes raises the very same issues raised in his prior proceedings.  His claims fail for the same reasons they failed last time, in addition to now failing on the principle of res judicata.  We affirm the district court without further opinion.
