Date Published:
Jul 22, 2020
Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Sarah Crane, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (11 pages)

            Appellants appeal a district court ruling on judicial review affirming the dismissal of their petitions for partial commutation of future payments of workers’ compensation.  They argue the agency’s interpretation of the commutation statute is improper and the dismissal of their commutation petitions violates their constitutional rights to due process and equal protection.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the district court’s ruling on judicial review affirming the agency decision.
