Habeas Appellate Court Slip Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC44413 - In re Naomi (On appeal, she claims, for the first time, that the trial court violated her fundamental right to direct the health care decisions and religious upbringing of her child by allowing the commissioner to consent to Naomi’s nonemergency surgery over the respondent’s religious objection. The respondent unsuccessfully sought a stay of the trial court’s order, and the commissioner reported that, on January 13, 2021, Naomi successfully underwent the surgery. Because this court can no longer grant any practical relief to the parties and the case does not meet the criteria for the ‘capable of repetition, yet evading review’ exception to the mootness doctrine, we dismiss the appeal as moot.)
