            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Delaware County, Monica Zrinyi Ackley, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED.  Heard by May, P.J., and Schumacher and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by May, P.J.  (26 pages)

            Anthony (Tony) Manatt appeals an order granting directed verdict to Bradford Manatt.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude (1) the district court erred in concluding that—as a matter of law—Tony’s claims were barred by the failure of a condition precedent; (2) the district court erred in concluding Tony lacked standing as a matter of law; and (3) Tony did not preserve error on his argument that the court should have granted him summary judgment based on the trial record.
