Sep. 21, 2022 – In re Baby Girl M. (2nd Dist., Div. 5, B311176)

In an appeal from jurisdiction and disposition, father argued the Department did not comply with its ICWA inquiry obligation. The parties submitted a joint application and stipulation for remand, which the Court of Appeal rejects. The court finds the appeal to be moot because ICWA related obligations are continuing duties, and there is no effective relief it can provide.
