Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Allamakee County, Alan Heavens, Judge. AFFIRMED ON APPEAL; REVERSED AND REMANDED ON CROSS-APPEAL. Considered by Mullins, P.J., and May and Schumacher, JJ. Opinion by May, J. (11 pages)
Steven Troendle appeals an adverse civil jury verdict. Michele Troendle cross-appeals claiming the jury’s verdict is inconsistent with its damages award for several causes of action. OPINION HOLDS: Steven’s claims are either not preserved, not sufficiently developed, or do not warrant relief. With respect to Michele’s cross-appeal, because we cannot reconcile the jury’s liability findings with its damages awards for abuse of process, interference with inheritance, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and breach of fiduciary duty, we reverse the verdicts as to damages on these four counts only.
