Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Stuart P. Werling, Judge.  AFFIRMED IN PART, REVERSED IN PART, AND REMANDED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (13 pages)

            McKinnon Q. Pangburn filed a dram shop claim and a premise liability claim against Rookies Sports Bar after he was assaulted in the bar’s parking lot.  Rookies moved for summary judgment on both claims, which the district court granted.  OPINION HOLDS: Pangburn presented a genuine issue of material fact with regard to the dram shop claim.  But he failed to establish premise liability as a matter of law.  So we affirm in part, reverse in part, and remand for trial.
