Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 27, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Monroe County, Daniel P. Wilson, Judge.  AFFIRMED IN PART, REVERSED IN PART, AND REMANDED.  Heard by Bower, C.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (8 pages)

            Compeer Financial, FLCA (Compeer) appeals the grant of summary judgment to Quality Plus Feeds, Inc. (Quality Plus) foreclosing Quality Plus’s agricultural-supply-dealer lien.  OPINION HOLDS: Navigating the competing priority rules is a somewhat complex and fact-intensive exercise.  Finding genuine issues of material fact that preclude the grant of summary judgment for either party, we reverse the grant of summary judgment to Quality Plus, affirm the denial of summary judgment to Compeer, and remand for further proceedings.
