In re Gianna D.
On November 17, 2011, at the conclusion of a combined jurisdictional and dispositional hearing, the juvenile court concluded that minor Gianna D. came within subdivision (b) of Welfare and Institutions Code section 300 (hereafter, subdivision (b)), and declared her a dependent child. Giannaâ€™s parents, Antonio D. and Kristine K., appeal from the dispositional order. Although expressed in differing language in their separate briefs, both parents argue that the conditions which might have warranted the initial assertion of jurisdiction had, by the time of the hearing, been so alleviated, mitigated, and superseded by subsequent events that they were wholly inadequate basis for a dependency. Although the parentsâ€™ contention has some colorable merit, it is not sufficient to overturn the dependency.
