Court of Appeals of Oregon.

IN RE: M.A.C., Alleged to be a Person with Mental Illness. STATE of Oregon, Respondent, v. M.A.C., Appellant.

14CC02253; A157964.

    Decided: February 19, 2015

Before ARMSTRONG, Presiding Judge, and NAKAMOTO, Judge, and EGAN, Judge. Garrett A. Richardson and Multnomah Defenders, Inc., filed the brief for appellant. Ellen F. Rosenblum, Attorney General, Anna M. Joyce, Solicitor General, and Carolyn Alexander, Senior Assistant Attorney General, filed the brief for respondent.

Appellant seeks reversal of a judgment committing him for a period not to exceed 180 days. ORS 426.130. He argues that the state failed to prove by clear and convincing evidence that, because of a mental disorder, he is a danger to others. ORS 426.005(1)(e). The state concedes that the evidence is legally insufficient to support the involuntary commitment and that the judgment should be reversed. We agree, accept the state's concession, and reverse the judgment of commitment.
