A-13-0516, In re Interest of Lillian S., a child under 18 years of age.
Scotts Bluff County, County Court Judge Kristen Mickey
Attorney for Appellant: David S. MacDonald (Public Defender’s Office)
Attorney for Appellee: Doug Warner (County Attorney’s Office), Lindsay R. Snyder (Guardian Ad Litem, Smith, Snyder & Petitt)
Civil Action: Termination of Parental Rights
Action Taken by Trial Court: The trial court terminated the parental rights of Appellant.
Assignments of Error on Appeal: Did the court err in finding termination was in the children’s best interests? Was the Appellant denied due process? Did the court err in finding there was no conflict of interest in the placement of the children with a family member who was also an employee of the county attorney’s office?
