            Eddie Hicks appeals the summary disposition of his postconviction-relief (PCR) application.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court did not err in granting summary judgment on Hicks’s claims of a Brady violation and ineffective assistance of counsel, nor did it err in denying his motion to amend his application.  Additionally, Hicks’s PCR counsel was not ineffective.
