Case No. 19-1571

John Lee Hrbek
State of Iowa

John Hrbek was granted interlocutory review of the district court’s order prohibiting him from filing any additional pro se filings while he is represented by counsel pursuant to Iowa Code section 822.3A(1). Hrbek contends the legislation should not restrict his right to file pro se pleadings in a postconviction action that was pending before July 1, 2019. He further contends section 822.3A(1) violates separation of powers, the right of access to the courts, and the right to counsel.
