Name: In re K.H.
Case #: F085284
Opinion Date: 05/09/2023
Attorney: Seth Gorman

In an appeal from the juvenile court’s orders terminating parental rights, the Court of Appeal remanded for compliance with the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), because the juvenile court and Department of Family Services failed to comply with ICWA’s inquiry and notice requirements. The court also found that the juvenile court’s order for random drug testing and requirement that father test negative for all substances was an abuse of discretion, as there was no basis on which to conclude father abused substances. The court reversed that portion of the juvenile court’s disposition.
