A-13-0331, In re Interest of Eli S., a child under 18 years of age. State of Nebraska v. Tammy S. (Appellant)
Lancaster County, Separate Juvenile Court Judge Reggie L. Ryder
Attorney for Appellant: Brittani Lewit (Legal Aid of Nebraska)
Attorney for Appellee (State): Alicia Henderson (County Attorney’s Office)
Attorney for Appellee (Guardian ad Litem): Julianne Spatz
Juvenile Action: Termination of parental rights
Action Taken by Trial Court: The juvenile court found that grounds to terminate Tammy’s parental rights existed pursuant to Neb. Rev. Stat. § 43-292(2) (neglect of a sibling of Eli’s) and that termination was in Eli’s best interests.
Assignments of Error on Appeal: Did the juvenile court err in finding that § 43-292(2) was met based on facts from a previous case and without considering Tammy’s present circumstances? Did the juvenile court err in finding that termination was in Eli’s best interests?
