Summary

            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 Vaitheswaran, J.  (6 pages)

            Clay Paulson appeals the denial of his application for postconviction relief, claiming his trial attorney was ineffective (1) in failing to “properly object to hearsay regarding” text messages and properly preserve the issue for appellate review and (2) in failing to “file a motion to suppress” under State v. Ingram, 914 N.W.2d 794 (Iowa 2018).  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the postconviction court’s denial of Poulson’s postconviction-relief application.
