Brittany J. v. Superior Court CA5
Petitioner Brittany J. is the mother of now nine-month-old R.J., who was declared a dependent of the Stanislaus County Juvenile Court and is the subject of these original proceedings. At the conclusion of a dispositional hearing, the juvenile court denied Brittany (mother) reunification services on multiple grounds (Welf. & Inst. Code, § 361.5, subd. (b)(6), (10) & (11)) and set a hearing pursuant to section 366.26 to select a permanent plan. Mother filed a petition seeking an extraordinary writ to overturn the court’s orders. (Cal. Rules of Court, rule 8.452.) She contends substantial evidence does not support the court’s order denying her reunification services. We conclude substantial evidence supports the court’s denial of services under section 361.5, subdivision (b)(10) and deny the petition.
