            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Sioux County, Jeffrey A. Neary, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (5 pages)

            This case involves yet another attempt by Jay Driesen to collaterally attack a judgment entered in 2008 pertaining to this trust.  He appeals from a series of orders entered November 20, 2018.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Jay has not brought to our attention any issues related to the orders at issue in this appeal and has not cited any relevant authority demonstrating Jay’s entitlement to relief, we deem him to have waived all issues on appeal.  Additionally, since the only claims Jay makes in his briefs are those seeking to collaterally attack the 2008 order, we find such claims to be barred by the doctrine of claim preclusion.  Therefore, we affirm.
