A-12-1203, In re Interest of Keisha G.: State of Nebraska v. Michael G. (Appellant)
Hall County, County Judge Arthur S. Wetzel
Attorney for Appellant: Jerry Fogarty
Attorney for Appellee: Tanya J. Hansen (Leininger, Smith, Johnson, Baack, Placzek & Allen)
Juvenile Action: Termination of Parental Rights
Action Taken by Trial Court: The county court, sitting as a juvenile court, terminated Michael G.’s parental rights to his daughter, Keisha G. The court found sufficient grounds for termination consistent with § 43-292(4) and (6). The court also found that termination was in Keisha’s best interest.
Assignments of Error on Appeal: Michael assigns, condensed and restated, that the trial court erred in (1) determining that termination of his parental rights was in Keisha’s best interests when the motion to terminate made no such allegation, (2) finding that it had jurisdiction to hear allegations under § 43-292(6) and (4), (3) admitting certain evidence over Michael’s objections, and (4) finding sufficient evidence to terminate Michael’s parental rights.
