Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Nov 30, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Lynn Poschner, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (8 pages)

            A mother appeals from the termination of her parental rights to her infant daughter.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm, as the mother may not challenge the termination of her parental rights by raising arguments pertaining to the other parent’s position.  We do not address the ineffective-assistance-of-counsel claims due to the lack of developed argument.  Lastly, we find termination of the mother’s parental rights to be in B.G.’s best interest.  Accordingly, we affirm the district court order.
