Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 29, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Buchanan County, Richard D. Stochl, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (6 pages)

            Gregory Pollow appeals the district court denial of his motion for new trial.  Pollow argues he should have been granted a new trial based on allegedly inappropriate comments from opposing counsel during closing arguments.  OPINION HOLDS: Defense counsel’s comments regarding stipulations entered into evidence by the claimant did not improperly instruct the jury.  No attorney misconduct occurred that would give rise to new trial.  We affirm the district court’s denial of the motion for new trial.
