            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Mitchell E. Turner, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Mullins, J., and Gamble, S.J.  Opinion by Gamble, S.J.  (13 pages)

            Chipokas, LLC appeals from a summary judgment ruling in favor of Casey’s Marketing Company (Casey’s) that determined Casey’s was not contractually bound to lease certain property from Chipokas.  OPINION HOLDS: A provision of a lease assigned to Casey’s did not require Casey’s to lease an adjoining piece of land upon renewal of the lease because the original lessee did not assign the right to renew the adjoining land to Casey’s and instead retained the right to renew the lease of the adjoining land.
