Israel Merlos
v.
Banegas Contracting, LLC and SFM Insurance

Defendant appeals from a district court ruling denying defendant’s motion to vacate a district court judgment entered on a default arbitration decision awarding plaintiff workers’ compensation benefits. Defendant contends the judgment is void because plaintiff mailed notice of his intent to take a default only to defendant’s attorney, and not to defendant, contrary to Iowa Rule of Civil Procedure 1.972(3).
