In re Anna S., No. D055036

By FindLaw Staff on January 14, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In dependency proceedings, an appeal from an order detaining appellant's daughter is dismissed as moot, although the court of appeals nevertheless reviews the issues on the merits and determines that the trial court erred to the extent it used a non-final opinion of an appellate court to alter its procedures and influence the outcome of the matter before it, as the trial court should have proceeded solely on the basis of its continuing jurisdiction, which authorizes it to continue to decide issues concerning the child's placement and well-being during the pendency of an appeal.
