Court of Appeals Opinion

Date Published:
Jan 12, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, James S. Heckerman, Judge.  APPEAL DISMISSED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, J.  (8 pages)

            Paul and Therese Yakel appeal the district court’s grant of Randall Wheeler’s motion for summary judgment as to their breach-of-contract, negligent-construction, and breach-of-implied-warranty claims.  OPINION HOLDS: We dismiss the appeal as interlocutory because each of the claims against Wheeler are intertwined with claims against the remaining defendants and granting an application for interlocutory appeal would not otherwise serve the interests of sound and efficient judicial administration.
