A-13-0567, In re Interest of Quintel C., et al., Children under 18 years of age. State of Nebraska v. Latoria C. and Charles G. (Appellants)

Separate Juvenile Court of Douglas County, Judge Christopher Kelly

Attorneys for Appellant (Charles):  Cassidy V. Chapman & Andrea M. Smith (Chapman Law Office)

Attorneys for Appellant (Latoria):  Darren J. Pekny (Johnson Pekny Law Firm)

Attorneys for Appellee (State):  Amy N. Schuchman, Mary C. Stiles, Matthew McGill, & Cody Miltenberger (Douglas County Attorney’s Office)

Juvenile Action:  Termination of parental rights

Action taken by the Trial Court:  The trial court found clear and convincing evidence for termination under Neb. Rev. Stat. § 43-292(2), (6), and (7) and that termination was in the children’s best interests.

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  Was termination of parental rights in the children’s best interests? Did the trial court enter an ex parte order without giving the parents an opportunity to be heard in a timely fashion? Did the trial court err in considering hearsay testimony as evidence of abuse?
