Nov. 30, 2022 – In re G.Z. (2nd Dist., Div. 8, B313378)

In an appeal from jurisdiction and disposition, the Court of Appeal vacates the juvenile court’s jurisdictional findings for lack of substantial evidence and directs the court to dismiss the petition on remand. Even though the juvenile court terminated jurisdiction after the notice of appeal was filed, the Court of Appeal determines the appeal is not moot because the jurisdictional findings could adversely affect or prejudice mother.
