Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Dec 19, 2018

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, David P. Odekirk, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Potterfield and Doyle, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (5 pages)

            Zejnudin Abdic appeals the summary dismissal of his application for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the decision he cites as a new ground of law was filed within three years of the date of his conviction, it cannot qualify as an exception for a new-ground-of-law exception to the limitation period.
