            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Sean W. McPartland, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (15 pages)

            Gayle Transgrud appeals the district court order granting defendant Michael Leer’s motion for summary judgment and denying her own motion for summary judgment in her suit brought in relation to injuries she sustained while riding in a semi-tractor owned by Leer and operated by Transgrud’s spouse.  OPINION HOLDS: Because there are no genuine issues of material fact and Leer is entitled to judgment as a matter of law, the district court properly denied Transgrud’s motion for summary judgment, granted Leer’s motion for summary judgment, and dismissed the suit.
