Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Aug 05, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Brad McCall, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Doyle and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (10 pages)

            June Fitzpatrick appeals the district court decision denying her request to declare the parties’ dissolution decree was void.  OPINION HOLDS: June’s claims of extrinsic fraud lacked credibility.  Her claims of intrinsic fraud, that her former spouse made misrepresentations during the dissolution proceedings, are not sufficient grounds to declare the decree was void.  We affirm the decision of the district court.
