Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Washington County, Joel D. Yates, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Doyle, P.J., and Blane and Lloyd, S.JJ.  Opinion by Blane, S.J.  (14 pages)

            Plaintiffs appeal from the district court’s grant of defendants’ motions for summary judgment on their claims against a bank and bank president for fraudulent misrepresentation and interference with contract. OPINION HOLDS:  Since evidence of the claimed agreement is not admissible under the statute of frauds in either section 535.17 or section 622.32, no reasonable jury could be convinced the alleged agreement is enforceable, and summary judgment was appropriate.
