            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Carroll County, Adria A.D. Kester, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, J.  (4 pages)

            Jesse Neitzel appeals the district court’s denial of his fifth postconviction-relief application, arguing: (1) the court erred in failing to grant him an exception to the three-year time bar in Iowa Code section 822.3 (2020), (2) the amendment to Iowa Code section 822.3 abrogating Allison v. State, 914 N.W.2d 866 (Iowa 2018) is unconstitutional, and (3) postconviction trial counsel was ineffective in failing to present facts to support his actual innocence claim.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court did not err in granting the State’s motion for summary disposition.
