            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Osceola County, Carl J.  Petersen, Judge.   AFFIRMED.   Considered by Bower, C.J., Langholz, J., and Potterfield, S.J.   Opinion by Langholz, J.   (8 pages)

            Plaintiff Hard Rappen Ranch, LLC, appeals the dismissal of his suit with prejudice after he repeatedly failed to pay the defendant’s venue-change attorney fees ordered under Iowa Rule of Civil Procedure 1.808.  OPINION HOLDS: Considering Hard Rappen’s willful noncompliance—it offered no viable justification for its venue jockeying, nor any credible explanation for twice disregarding the court’s order—and affording due weight to the district court’s discretion, we affirm.
