            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Mary E. Howes, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (8 pages)

            Julie Loose appeals the denial of her motion to reconsider the district court’s order confirming the arbitration award.  She argues her answer to Prospect Funding Partners, LLC’s cross-claim for declaratory judgment should have operated as a timely application to vacate.  OPINION HOLDS: We reverse and remand for consideration of Loose’s motion to vacate the arbitration award on the merits.
