            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Clarke County, Terry R. Rickers, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Ahlers, P.J., and Badding and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (5 pages)

            Martin Moon appeals the dismissal of his application for postconviction relief (PCR) concerning his conviction for murder in the first degree.  He maintains summary dismissal was improper because he alleges newly discovered evidence and potential Brady violations.  OPINION HOLDS: Moon failed to establish that he could not have raised the newly discovered evidence earlier in the exercise of due diligence.  We therefore affirm the dismissal of his PCR application.
