            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Samantha Gronewald, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (13 pages)

            Derek Krogman appeals the district court’s decision affirming the ruling of the Iowa Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) that there was just cause to terminate Krogman’s employment with the State.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court applied the correct standard of review.  Giving appropriate deference to PERB’s application of the law to the facts, we determine PERB did not act irrationally, illogically, or wholly unjustifiably in finding that the State provided just cause for discharging Krogman.  PERB’s actions were not inconsistent with its prior practices and precedents.  We affirm the decisions of the district court and PERB.
