            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Buchanan County, Margaret L. Lingreen, Judge.  APPEAL DISMISSED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, J.  (5 pages)

            Jose Lopez appeals the denial of his postconviction-relief application, contending the postconviction court erred in “refusing to take up the matter of [his] illegal sentence.”  OPINION HOLDS: Having obtained the relief in his underlying criminal case he now seeks, Lopez’s appeal is moot.  Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal.
