            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Ian K. Thornhill, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (15 pages)

            Tracie Turner appeals the jury verdict finding her 98% liable in her premises liability action.  She challenges pre-trial evidence issues, the district court’s exclusion of impeachment evidence, and the district court’s rejection of jury instructions for evidence spoliation and negligence per se.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we find no abuse in the district court’s discretion on preserved challenges to pre-trial evidence matters, that Turner suffered no prejudice from the exclusion of impeachment evidence, and no legal error in the rejection of the spoliation and negligence per se instructions, we affirm.
