Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 13, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Boone County, John R. Flynn, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (10 pages)

            Mark Haase appeals the denial of his application for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Haase failed to prove breach of an essential duty by his trial counsel, we find he did not establish ineffective assistance of counsel in connection with any of the three grounds asserted in this appeal. We therefore affirm the district court’s denial of Haase’s application for postconviction relief.
