Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Wayne County, Bradley McCalland Richard B. Clogg, Judges. Richard Harden appeals the district court's orders granting summary judgment for the defendants.
Richard L. Harden, Lineville, appellant Pro se.
David L. Brown and Alexander E. Wonio of Hansen, McClintock & Riley, Des Moines, for appellee Norris.
Verle W. Norris, Corydon, for appellees Porter and Barringer.
Considered by Vogel, P.J., and Tabor and McDonald, JJ.
Richard Harden appeals the district court's grant of summary judgment to the defendants in both his actions in equity and at law. The court determined as a matter of law no binding oral contract for the sale of an acreage existed between Harden and land owner Gary Porter.
After a careful review of the record, the parties' briefs, the applicable law, and the district court's sound analysis, we conclude the summary judgment rulings should be affirmed without opinion pursuant to Iowa Rule of Appellate Procedure 6.1203 (a) and (d).
