Summary

            Certiorari to the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Linda M. Fangman, Judge.  WRIT SUSTAINED AND CASE REMANDED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Schumacher and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by May, P.J.  (17 pages)

            A law firm seeks certiorari review of a district court order imposing monetary sanctions.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the district court did not abuse its discretion in concluding a sanction was appropriate.  But we do not agree with all of the grounds on which the district court based its decision to sanction.  So we remand with instructions to reconsider the amount of the sanction.
