OPINIONS OF THE SUPREME COURT

FILED Wednesday, April 27, 2016

NOTICE - MEDIA RELEASE TIME IS 10:00 A.M.




A14-1810       In the Matter of the Welfare of:  C.J.H., Child.
                        Court of Appeals.
            The juvenile court did not continue this case without adjudication under Minn. R. Juv. Delinq. P. 15.05 because that court never found that the allegations in the charging document were proven, and therefore the court of appeals erred when it concluded that the juvenile court’s jurisdiction expired before respondent was adjudicated delinquent.
            Reversed.  Justice Natalie E. Hudson.
            Took no part, Justice Margaret H. Chutich.
