Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Jasper County, Thomas P. Murphy, Judge. REVERSED. Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Greer, JJ. Opinion by Greer, J. (13 pages)
L.W. appeals the district court’s grant of a sexual abuse protective order against him, petitioned for by N.H. on behalf of her minor child, L.W., pursuant to Iowa Code chapter 236A (2020). OPINION HOLDS: Because N.H. failed to prove that sexual abuse occurred by a preponderance of the evidence, we reverse the district court’s issuance of the chapter 236A protective order.
