Date Published:
Mar 02, 2022
Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Ringgold County, Michael Jacobsen, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by May, P.J., and Schumacher and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J.  (15 pages)

            Dan Sickels appeals a district court ruling granting a petition for partition of real property by sale and the court’s award of the net proceeds.  Sickels argues the court erred in determining his interest in the property as a joint tenant with full rights of survivorship was divested and not awarding him one-half of the proceeds from the sale.  OPINION HOLDS: Finding no error in the court’s determination that the joint tenancy was severed or in its award of the net proceeds, we affirm.
