In re M.C.

Justia Opinion Summary After a termination hearing, the district court terminated Father's parental rights to his child on the grounds that Father was unwilling or unable to take responsibility for the child in a time frame calculated to meet the child's needs and that the termination of parental rights was in the best interest of the child. Father's counsel subsequently filed an appellate brief containing only a procedural history and statement of facts, accompanied by a motion for enlargement of time to allow Father personally to file a supplemental brief. The Supreme Court granted the motion, but Father did not file a supplemental brief by the deadline provided. The Court affirmed, holding (1) the process utilized by Father's counsel in this appeal was proper; and (2) the district court did not err in finding that termination of Father's parental rights was in the child's best interest.
