In re Nickolas T., D063010

The juvenile court's dispositional order denying Mother's request for custody of her minor son is affirmed, where: 1) the minor's California dependency proceeding was not a continuation of his Mississippi Youth Court case; 2) the juvenile court is required to consider a noncustodial parent's request for custody under section 361.2(a), even if that parent was the subject of a finding of detriment in an earlier dependency case and did not retain the right to physical custody of the child; but 3) the error was not prejudicial to Mother, where there was substantial evidence that placement of the minor with Mother would be detrimental to the minor.
