18-2189
Date Published:
Apr 29, 2020
Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Michael D. Huppert, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Ahlers, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (8 pages)

            Michael Hilson appeals the district court’s dismissal of his application for postconviction relief, challenging the district court’s summary dismissal of his claim through a merits analysis of a newly discovered evidence claim rather than applying a ground-of-fact test to determine whether it was time barred.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the denial of Hilson’s application for postconviction relief.
