            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Butler County, Rustin Davenport, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by May, J.  (6 pages)

            Jenny Hugill appeals the district court’s entry of a civil domestic protective order protecting Joseph Hugill.  OPINION HOLDS: The record does not establish an assault as defined in Iowa Code section 708.1 (2019), and thus does not establish “domestic abuse” within the meaning of section 236.2.  So we reverse and remand for dismissal of the civil domestic protective order
