The Iowa Supreme Court has already refused to take up McGinnis' case. He has also lost in the appellate process. This case is the last bastion of appeal available on the state level. Judge Brad McCall is presiding over the case. If McCall ultimately rules in McGinnis' favor, McGinnis would get a new trial. If not, McGinnis could apply for post-conviction relief again, but subsequent applications are less likely to move forward.
