Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Robert B. Hanson, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Bower and Greer, JJ. Opinion by Greer, J. (6 pages)
K.T. challenges the district court’s finding of serious mental impairment, claiming there is insufficient evidence that she lacks sufficient judgment to make responsible decisions with respect to her hospitalization or treatment. OPINION HOLDS: We conclude the district court’s findings of fact were supported by substantial evidence, and there was no error of law in the district court’s decision that K.T. lacked sufficient judgment to make responsible decisions regarding her care.
