Date Published:

           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Buchanan County, Stephanie C. Rattenborg, District Associate Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Potterfield and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J. (4 pages)

            Alliance Pipeline, L.P., appeals the district court’s dismissal of its small claims appeal as untimely because its original electronic submission prior to the deadline mistakenly designated a brief as a second notice of appeal.  OPINION HOLDS: We find resubmission of the notice of appeal relates back to the original submission one day earlier for the purposes of meeting the appellate deadline.  Accordingly, we reverse the dismissal and remand for further proceedings on the merits.
