Alameda Cty. Soc. Servs. Agency v. S.V., No. A121951

By FindLaw Staff on August 28, 2009 1:14 PM

In an appeal from a juvenile court's order terminating dependency jurisdiction over Defendant's daughter, the order is affirmed, where: 1) the court properly dismissed dependency jurisdiction and allowed the daughter to remain in her group home; 2) Defendant's challenge to the risk of detriment finding was moot; and 3) reversal and remand to require the juvenile court to comply with the Indian Child Welfare Act would be futile because the daughter had reached the age of majority, and therefore was not an "Indian child" within the meaning of the Act.
