Supreme Court of North Dakota.

In the INTEREST OF T.L.E. Adam Miller, PsyD, Petitioner and Appellee v. T.L.E., Respondent and Appellant

No. 20220253

Decided: September 29, 2022

Jason Van Horn, Assistant State's Attorney, Fargo, ND, for petitioner and appellee; submitted on brief. Andrew Marquart, Fargo, ND, for respondent and appellant; submitted on brief.

[¶1] T.L.E. appeals from the district court's orders continuing his treatment at the North Dakota State Hospital and for treatment with medication. T.L.E. argues the district court erred by finding he is mentally ill and a person requiring treatment. He also argues the court erred by ordering involuntary treatment with prescribed medication.

[¶2] In mental health commitment cases we apply the more probing clearly erroneous standard of review to factual findings made by the district court. See In re Doe, 2019 ND 23, ¶ 4, 921 N.W.2d 403. We conclude the district court's findings are not clearly erroneous. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).

Per Curiam.

[¶3] Jon J. Jensen, C.J. Gerald W. VandeWalle Daniel J. Crothers Lisa Fair McEvers Jerod E. Tufte
