            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Sioux County, Duane E. Hoffmeyer, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Tabor, P.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (8 pages)

            North Star Mutual Insurance Company filed this declaratory judgment action to determine its obligation to defend or indemnify Gary Schley against claims raised in a separate lawsuit filed by his ex-wife, Julie Schley.  After granting Julie’s motion to intervene, the district court decided Gary was not covered by the insurance policy issued to Gary’s parents, Donald and Margery Schley.  OPINION HOLDS: Finding no error in the court’s interpretation of the policy, we affirm.
