Appeal from the Juvenile Court of Burleigh County, South Central Judicial District, the Honorable Bruce A. Romanick, Judge.
[¶1] The mother of a six-year-old boy and a five-year-old girl appeals from an order terminating her parental rights to the children. She argues the judicial referee and the district court erred in determining the children are deprived and in terminating her parental rights. She also argues the judicial referee erred in denying her motion for written closing arguments at the end of the evidentiary hearing. Because the findings supporting the decision to terminate parental rights are not clearly erroneous and the judicial referee did not abuse her discretion in denying the motion, we summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2) and (4).
