Date Published:
Sep 11, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Arthur E. Gamble, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Mullins and Greer, JJ.  Gamble, S.J., takes no part.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (5 pages)

            Christopher Fisher appeals the district court order dismissing his contempt application.  He argues the district court erred by finding he had not met his burden to prove his former spouse Karen Fisher had willfully violated the prior custody order concerning their minor child by sending the child on a trip over Christopher’s objection.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court did not abuse its discretion.  We affirm.
