Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Aug 18, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, Michael J. Schilling, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., Ahlers, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, S.J.  (7 pages)

            Michael Ripperger appeals the district court decision denying his application for postconviction relief (PCR) on the ground it was untimely.  OPINION HOLDS: Ripperger’s claims were based on a clarification of existing law and did not present a new ground of fact or law, and, therefore, were time-barred.  Because Ripperger’s claims are barred under the three-year statute of limitations, we do not have authority to consider the other issues he raises on appeal.  We affirm the district court’s decision denying Ripperger’s PCR application.
