Date Published:
Aug 31, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Amy Zacharias, Judge.  CONDITIONALLY AFFIRMED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Schumacher and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (16 pages)

            Robert J. Darrah appeals the district court order that set aside the order admitting a lost will to probate in Robert Scott Darrah’s estate.  OPINION HOLDS: We find no legal error in the district court order as to the timeliness of the minor children’s motion to set aside and conclude substantial evidence supports the district court’s ruling that Robert did not prove a diligent search had been made.  We conditionally affirm the order and remand to the district court.
