Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Aug 04, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Coleman J. McAllister, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Bower, C.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (12 pages)

            Heidi Koll appeals an order dismissing her petition for declaratory judgment and granting summary judgment to Wells Fargo Bank on the enforceability of its mortgage lien following a bankruptcy discharge.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the governing federal principles provide a creditor’s mortgage lien survives a bankruptcy discharge and remains a valid lien on the debtor’s property, and the district court properly applied the law, we affirm the ruling.
