Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Tod Deck, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ. Opinion by Ahlers, J. (7 pages)
Douglas and his new wife, Ramona Santee, appeal the order denying their challenge to an administrative levy under Iowa Code chapter 252I (2019). OPINION HOLDS: Ramona failed to preserve error on her due process claim. On their equitable estoppel claim, equitable estoppel does not apply to a chapter 252I challenge, and, even if equitable estoppel could apply here, Douglas and Ramona failed to prove equitable estoppel by clear and convincing evidence.
