Mar. 23, 2023 – In re L.J. (3rd Dist., C096775)

The Court of Appeal affirms the order terminating mother’s parental rights. The court finds the juvenile court did not violate mother’s right to due process by excluding the audio/video recording she made of herself with the minor. In addition, the juvenile court’s finding that the beneficial relationship exception did not apply was supported by substantial evidence and was not an abuse of discretion.
