Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Fae E. Hoover-Grinde, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Vogel and Tabor, JJ. Opinion by Danilson, C.J. (4 pages)
Dewey Goins appeals from the denial of his application to modify support for his former spouse Mary (known as “Pat”) Goins. OPINION HOLDS: We agree with the trial court that modification of Dewey’s support obligation is not warranted. Rather, modifying the spousal support would do a positive injustice to Pat. We therefore affirm.
