Aug. 12, 2022 – In re S.H. (1st Dist., Div. 1, A163623)

In an appeal from a dispositional order, mother argued the Department conducted an inadequate investigation into the minor’s possible Native American ancestry. The Department conceded the error. The Court of Appeal accepts the concession but affirms the dispositional order on the ground that there is no reason to believe that the duty of inquiry, which is a continuing one, will not be satisfied as the proceedings are ongoing.
