In the Interest of E.L. Prairie St. Johns and Sanford Health, Petitioners and Appellees
E.L., Respondent and Appellant
Appeal from the District Court of Cass County, East Central Judicial District, the Honorable Wickham Corwin, Judge.
Kara Schmitz Olson, Assistant State's Attorney, Fargo, ND, for petitioners and appellees.
Jay Ryan Greenwood, Fargo, ND, for respondent and appellant.
Gerald W. VandeWalle, C.J., Daniel J. Crothers, Lisa Fair McEvers, Carol Ronning Kapsner, Dale V. Sandstrom.
[¶1] E.L. appeals from a district court order for involuntary treatment with medication. E.L. argues the district court's order is clearly erroneous because clear and convincing evidence does not support the findings that the medication is clinically appropriate, that the medication is the least restrictive means of treating the patient and that the known benefits outweigh the risks. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
[¶2] Gerald W. VandeWalle, C.J., Daniel J. Crothers, Lisa Fair McEvers, Carol Ronning Kapsner, Dale V. Sandstrom.
