Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Johnson County, Paul D. Miller, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (8 pages)

            Carolyn Lindgren appeals from a jury verdict in a personal-injury case.  She argues the district court abused its discretion in allowing testimony about the pool’s steps four years after the incident at issue.  In addition, she argues the district court abused its discretion in denying a jury viewing of the pool’s steps.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the 2016 inspection testimony was relevant and non-prejudicial, we find no abuse of discretion.  We also find the decision to deny a jury viewing was well reasoned and within the sound discretion of the court.
