In re E.A, 073041

Two US citizen minors were found living in squalid conditions and neglected by their parents in Tijuana. The San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency brought them to San Diego and initiated dependency petitions. Later, the Agency sought to dismiss the petitions because a Grandmother was now taking care of the minors and their condition was greatly improved. The minors appealed and the appellate court reversed the dismissal because a dismissal should only be granted in the interests of justice and the welfare of the minor. In this case, the court believed the minors were in continued danger of being taken from the Grandmother by the parents.
