Court of Appeals
Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Bradley J. Harris, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ. Opinion by Potterfield, P.J. (6 pages)
J.E. challenges the district court’s order of continued involuntary inpatient commitment. J.E. maintains there is insufficient evidence to support the determination he is a present danger to himself or others and requires continued placement in an alternative care facility. OPINION HOLDS: J.E. is not able to satisfy his essential needs without assistance. Because sufficient evidence supports the district court’s order of continued involuntary inpatient commitment, we affirm.
