The juvenile court accepted mother’s admission that her children were neglected or dependent, but did not enter a formal order adjudicating the children’s status as to mother before it terminated mother’s parental rights approximately a year later. The court of appeals held that the juvenile court lacked jurisdiction to terminate mother’s parental rights because it had not entered an order adjudicating the children’s status as dependent or neglected.</p> <p>The supreme court held that the juvenile court’s acceptance of mother’s admission established the children’s status as dependent or neglected, thus fulfilling the purpose of the adjudicative process and permitting state intervention into the familial relationship. The juvenile court’s failure to enter an adjudicative order confirming the children’s status did not divest the juvenile court of jurisdiction to terminate mother’s parental rights in this case, nor did it impair the fundamental fairness of the proceedings or deprive the mother of due process under the circumstances of this case. Accordingly, the court reversed the court of appeals’ judgment and remanded the case to the court of appeals to consider mother’s other contentions on appeal.</p></blockquote> <p><em>Summary provided courtesy of </em><a href="http://www.cobar.org/-em-Colorado-Lawyer-em" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Colorado Lawyer</a>.</p> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/CBACLELegalConnection/~4/p25V64gC4ws" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> http://cbaclelegalconnection.com/2017/12/colorado-supreme-court-juvenile-court-not-err-failing-make-written-finding-dependency-neglect/feed/ 0 http://cbaclelegalconnection.com/2017/12/colorado-supreme-court-juvenile-court-not-err-failing-make-written-finding-dependency-neglect/ 2017-12-13 15:10 +00:00 2017-12-13 08:10 -07:00 http://cbaclelegalconnection.com/?p=38151 http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CBACLELegalConnection/~3/-x58ynnZlf0/ Case Law appellate law Colorado Supreme Court criminal law interlocutory appeal Miranda Colorado Supreme Court: Interactions Between Police and Defendant Non-Custodial for Miranda Purposes The Colorado Supreme Court issued its opinion in <em>People v.

Landmark Towers Association, Inc.</em></a> on Monday, December 11, 2017.</p> <blockquote><p><em>Taxpayer Bill of Rights—Election Challenges—C.R.S. § 1-11-213(4)</em>—Non-claim Statutes.</p> <p>This case principally required the supreme court to determine whether the 10-day time limitation set forth in C.R.S. § 1-11-213(4) barred respondent homeowners association’s challenge to an election authorizing the issuance of bonds and the collection of debt pursuant to the Taxpayer Bill of Rights. Respondent contended that the election was invalid because its members were eligible electors, and these electors did not receive notice of the election and were not given an opportunity to vote in it. It is undisputed that respondent did not file its election challenge until more than three years after the statutory deadline. The question thus was whether respondent’s challenge could proceed, based on the equitable tolling doctrine or the exception for certain types of claims articulated in <em>Cacioppo v. Eagle County School District Re-50J</em>, 92 P.3d 453 (Colo. 2004). With regard to equitable tolling, the court concluded that C.R.S. § 1-11-213(4) is a non-claim statute. Accordingly, the doctrine of equitable tolling does not apply. As to <em>Cacioppo</em>, the court concluded that respondent’s claim is not a challenge to the substance of the ballot issue but rather is a challenge to the means by which the election results were obtained. The court thus concluded that respondent’s claim is subject to C.R.S. § 1-11-213(4)’s 10-day time limit and that its challenge to the bond and tax election at issue was time barred. Accordingly, the court reversed the judgment of the court of appeals and remanded the case for further proceedings.</p></blockquote> <p><em>Summary provided courtesy of </em><a href="http://www.cobar.org/-em-Colorado-Lawyer-em" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Colorado Lawyer</a>.</p> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/CBACLELegalConnection/~4/GzvpFTJI1DU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> http://cbaclelegalconnection.com/2017/12/colorado-supreme-court-election-challenge-time-barred-filed-equitable-tolling-not-apply/feed/ 0 http://cbaclelegalconnection.com/2017/12/colorado-supreme-court-election-challenge-time-barred-filed-equitable-tolling-not-apply/ 2017-12-13 15:09 +00:00 2017-12-13 08:09 -07:00 http://cbaclelegalconnection.com/?p=38147 http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CBACLELegalConnection/~3/RtOmHimegwQ/ Case Law 10th Circuit Tenth Circuit: Unpublished Opinions, 12/11/2017 On Monday, December 11, 2017, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals issued one published opinion and one unpublished opinion.
