Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Mar 02, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, David P. Odekirk, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and May, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (12 pages)

            Mark Hopper appeals the district court’s dismissal of his petition seeking title to property awarded to the City of Waterloo under Iowa Code section 657A.10A (2019).  OPINION HOLDS: The district court did not err because Hopper was not the real party in interest, he was foreclosed from arguing he was entitled a guardian ad litem, and his petition otherwise constitutes an impermissible collateral attack that was filed more than one year after entry of judgment.
