            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Adams County, Michael Jacobsen, Judge.  AFFIRMED IN PART, VACATED IN PART, AND REMANDED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (3 pages)

            Mark Curtis appeals the district court’s reopening of the record and modification of a settlement agreement.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court’s modification of the terms of the settlement agreement was an abuse of discretion.  As such, we vacate paragraph five of the adjudication provisions of the order on the motion to reopen and modify and remand for any necessary further proceedings as a result of the same.  We deny Misha Curtis’s request for appellate attorney fees.  Costs on appeal are to be assessed equally between the parties.
