Court of Appeals Opinion

Date Published:
Apr 01, 2020
Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Scott D. Rosenberg, Judge.  REVERSED.  Heard by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (6 pages)

            The appellants appeal the judicial-review ruling of the district court.  They argue the Iowa Workers’ Compensation Commissioner properly denied Rachel Lovan’s application for alternate medical care and the court erred in reversing that decision.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the record on appeal is insufficient for us to review the agency decision, and we reverse the district court’s ruling.
