Date Published:

Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Lee (North) County, Ty Rogers, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Doyle and Schumacher, JJ.  Per Curiam.  (8 pages)

            L.H. appeals the district court decision finding he was seriously mentally impaired.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude there is substantial evidence in the record to support the district court’s findings that without treatment L.H. would likely inflict serious emotional injury on individuals who lacked a reasonable opportunity to avoid contact with him.  We affirm the court’s decision.
