            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Johnson County, Chad A. Kepros, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (5 pages)

            Adil Adams appeals the district court’s dismissal of his attempt to challenge a decision by the Iowa Civil Rights Commission (ICRC) to close its investigation of his complaint against the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC).  Adams claims the district court should have granted his motion to reopen the judicial review because he did not receive UIHC’s motion to dismiss or the order dismissing the case.  Adams also contends the district court violated his due process rights by not setting his motion to reopen for a hearing.  OPINION HOLDS: The information available in the record confirms the UIHC sent its motion to dismiss to both his email accounts.  Adams bore the responsibility to update his email, monitor his accounts, and notify the court if he could no longer participate as a registered filer in EDMS.  Next, because Adams does not state in his brief where in the record he preserved the constitutional issue for our review, and we cannot find a district court ruling on his due process issue, we decline to address it.
