Name: Karen H. v. Superior Court
Case #: C038357
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 3 DCA
Citation: 91 Cal.App.4th 501

The trial court properly found that appellant had “resisted treatment” under Welfare and Institutions Code section 361.5, subdivision (b)(12) where she participated in treatment, but continued to abuse drugs and alcohol, thus demonstrating her inability to use the skills taught to maintain sobriety. Therefore the trial court properly denied reunification to mother under that section, and mother’s extraordinary writ was denied.
