Juvenile Law Appellate Court Slip Opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC44973 - In re Faith D.-A. ("The respondent mother, Shanequa A., appeals from the judgment of the trial court terminating her parental rights with respect to her minor child, Faith D.-A. On appeal, the respondent claims that she was denied due process of law and equal protection of the law under the fourteenth amendment to the United States constitution because ‘the state compelled her to participate in a virtual trial to terminate her parental rights without providing her with an electronic device that allowed her to appear before the court in the same manner as if she were on trial in a courtroom.’ We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
