Date Published:
Dec 15, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Chickasaw County, John J. Bauercamper, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., May, J., and Gamble, S.J.  Opinion by Gamble, S.J.  (7 pages)

            Shawn Chevchuc appeals the district court’s denial of his application for contempt.  OPINION HOLDS: Several of Chevchuc’s claims are not preserved for appellate review.  With respect to his preserved claims, we conclude the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying the application for contempt.  We conclude the court did not abuse its discretion by not disqualifying opposing counsel for a conflict of interest.  And we agree with the district court that it cannot impose sanctions on counsel for purported ethics violations.
