Name: In re Mario C.
Case #: H025816
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 6 DCA
Opinion Date: 12/14/2004
Subsequent History: Revw. den. 3/23/05

A minor may not appeal a court’s deferred entry of judgment. The minor here attempted to challenge the juvenile court order denying his motion to suppress unlawfully seized evidence, but the court of appeal dismissed the appeal. The minor had been granted deferred entry of judgment under Welfare and Institutions Code sections 790 et seq. Where judgment has been deferred, no appealable order exists. A party may only appeal from a judgment consisting of a final determination of the rights of the parties in an action or proceeding.
