Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dickinson County, David C. Larson, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., May, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (6 pages)

            A father appeals adjudicatory and dispositional orders in a child-in-need-of-assistance action, contending (A) “[t]he first removal was premised solely on circumstances regarding the mother” and (B) his “constitutional right to care for his child should not have been infringed based upon his failure to submit to a worker’s request for drug testing.”  OPINION HOLDS: Upon our review, we affirm the juvenile court’s orders.
