Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 27, 2022

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

            Darren Petro appeals the denial of his petition for judicial review challenging the administrative closure of his complaint with the Davenport Civil Rights Commission (DCRC).  OPINION HOLDS: Petro was required to file his petition for judicial review within thirty days of the administrative closure of his complaint with the DCRC.  Because he failed to do so, his petition is not timely, and we do not consider his due-process claim.
