Date Published:
Dec 15, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Jasper County, Brad McCall, Judge.  WRIT SUSTAINED, ORDER VACATED, AND CASE REMANDED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., and May and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, P.J.  (6 pages)

            On certiorari, the State challenges the legality of a district court ruling in a postconviction-relief proceeding, granting relief following a prison disciplinary decision.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude Iowa Code chapter 822 (2020) was not the proper vehicle to challenge the decision.  As such, we sustain the writ of certiorari and vacate the district court’s order granting relief.  We remand the matter to the district court to enter an order effectuating this opinion.
