Court of Appeals
Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Eliza J. Ovrom, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Bower and McDonald, JJ. Opinion by Bower, J. (7 pages)
M.B. appeals the district court decision finding him to be seriously mentally impaired. OPINION HOLDS: We find there is sufficient evidence in the record to show M.B. lacks sufficient judgment to make responsible decisions with respect to his treatment and is likely, if allowed to remain at liberty, to inflict physical injury on himself or others. We affirm the decision of the district court.
