Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Oct 06, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Henry W. Latham II, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., and May and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by May, J.  (3 pages)

            John Gipson appeals the summary dismissal of his fifth application for postconviction relief (PCR).  OPINION HOLDS: Because Gipson does not identify which of his claims should have survived summary dismissal, and we decline to take on a partisan role of sifting through his claims to develop an argument, we affirm the summary dismissal.  The PCR court did not abuse its discretion in declining to appoint Gipson counsel.
