Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Jeffrey Farrell, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Mullins and Greer, JJ. Opinion by Mullins, J. (6 pages)
T.M. appeals an order for his involuntary hospitalization, challenging the sufficiency of the evidence supporting the court’s conclusion he is seriously mentally impaired. OPINION HOLDS: On our review, we find no serious or substantial doubts about the correctness of the district court’s conclusion drawn from the evidence that T.M. was seriously mentally impaired within the meaning of Iowa Code section 229.1(20)(c) (2020). As such, we affirm.
