Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 15, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Andrea J. Dryer, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (6 pages)

            Willie J. Wilder appeals the denial of his second postconviction-relief (PCR) application.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude that Wilder’s second PCR application does not qualify for the Allison relation-back doctrine because it was not promptly filed after conclusion of his first PCR action and is therefore time barred.  The district court correctly dismissed Wilder’s the application.
