Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Sep 12, 2018

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Johnson County, Kevin Mckeever, Judge.  APPEAL DISMISSED.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Vogel and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Danilson, C.J.  (4 pages)

            M.R. appeals an order of the district court finding he remains seriously mentally impaired.  M.R. argues the State failed to prove he lacked sufficient judgment to make reasonable decisions about his treatment, and there was not substantial evidence of dangerousness because there was no evidence of a recent overt act, attempt, or threat.  OPINION HOLDS: Because M.R.’s appeal was not timely filed, we lack jurisdiction and dismiss his appeal.
