Jul. 12, 2022 – In re M.M. (2nd Dist., Div. 8, B315997)

Appellant argued that the order terminating parental rights should be reversed because the adoption assessment was inadequate, the juvenile court abused its discretion in denying a bonding study, and the Department conducted an inadequate initial inquiry under the ICWA. The Court of Appeal disagrees and affirms the order terminating parental rights.
