            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, David May, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., Bower, J., and Vogel, S.J.  May, J., takes no part.  Opinion by Vogel, S.J.  (8 pages)

            Alexa Anthony appeals from the district court orders granting motions to dismiss from both 60th Street III, L.C. (60th Street) and Professional Property Management, Inc. (PPM).  She argues good cause existed to permit her additional time to serve 60th Street and her amended petition adding PPM as a defendant properly related back to her initial petition.  OPINION HOLDS: Anthony has not shown good cause for failing to timely serve 60th Street and no state of facts exists under the petitions for PPM to know she intended to name them as defendant within the time to bring her claim.  Therefore, we affirm the dismissals of both defendants.
