In re Kevin A., F070914

In an appeal from an order granting a public conservator's petition to reestablish conservatorship for a one-year period, finding appellant to be gravely disabled under the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act (LPS), Welf. & Inst. Code section 5000 et seq., the order granting the petition is reversed where, in light of the California Supreme Court's decisions in People v. Blackburn (2015) 61 Cal.4th 1113 and People v. Tran (2015) 61 Cal.4th 1160, the court erred in accepting a waiver of jury trial over appellant's objection and request.
