Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Johnson County, Lars Anderson, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Schumacher, JJ. Opinion by Schumacher, J. (8 pages)
D.S. appeals the district court decision finding he was seriously mentally impaired. He challenges only the court’s finding that he presented a danger to himself or others. OPINION HOLDS: We find there is sufficient evidence in the record to show D.S. was likely to quit taking medication for his mental health and diabetes if released from a residential facility. D.S. has a history of lack of compliance with treatment. We affirm the decision of the district court.
