Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Sep 22, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Sarah E. Crane, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Greer and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (2 pages)

            Bobby Woodberry’s fifth application for postconviction relief challenging his 1995 convictions for first-degree murder and assault with intent to commit serious injury was summarily dismissed by the district court.  Woodberry appeals, claiming the holding of State v. Allison, 914 N.W.2d 866 (Iowa 2018), should save his application from the statutory time-bar.  OPINION HOLDS: We do not apply the holding of Allison to fifth PCR applications.  We affirm.
