Court of Appeals of Oregon.

IN RE: G. L. L., a Person Alleged to have a Mental Illness. STATE OF OREGON, Respondent, v. G. L. L., Appellant.


Decided: January 31, 2018

Before Armstrong, Presiding Judge, and Tookey, Judge, and Shorr, Judge. Alexander C. Cambier and Multnomah Defenders, Inc., filed the brief for appellant. Ellen F. Rosenblum, Attorney General, Benjamin Gutman, Solicitor General, and Peenesh Shah, Assistant Attorney General, filed the brief for respondent.


Appellant seeks reversal of a judgment committing her to the Mental Health Division for a period not to exceed 180 days. ORS 426.130. She contends that the state failed to prove by clear and convincing evidence that, because of a mental disorder, she is a danger to herself or unable to provide for her basic personal needs. ORS 426.005(1)(f). The state concedes that the evidence is legally insufficient to support appellant's involuntary commitment and that the judgment should be reversed. We agree, accept the state's concession, and reverse the judgment of commitment.
