Court of Appeals
Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Washington County, Daniel P. Kitchen, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Bower and McDonald, JJ. Opinion by Potterfield, P.J. (4 pages)
The mother appeals the order placing T.B. in her father’s custody, arguing the district court lacked jurisdiction to modify the disposition while she appealed the child’s removal. OPINION HOLDS: Because we find the issue of where to place T.B. is distinct from the issue on appeal of whether T.B. should be removed from her mother’s care and custody, we find the district court retained jurisdiction to modify the dispositional order while the appeal was pending.
