Interest of C.L.No. 20110111
[¶1] C.L., father of the minor C.L., appeals from the juvenile court's order terminating his parental rights. C.L. argues the juvenile court made insufficient findings and improperly considered excluded evidence. The district court found that the minor C.L. was deprived and that he had been in foster care for over six hundred consecutive days. These findings are not clearly erroneous, and we summarily affirm the district court's judgment under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2). See In re L.J., 2007 ND 74, ¶ 2, 734 N.W.2d 342 ("a court may terminate parental rights solely on a finding of (1) deprivation and (2) that the child has been in foster care . . . for at least four hundred fifty out of the previous six hundred sixty nights") (quotations omitted).
