#16-180 Bianka M. v. Superior Court, S233757

#16-180 Bianka M. v. Superior Court, S233757. (B267454; 245 Cal.App.4th 406; Los Angeles County Superior Court; BF052072.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal denied a petition for peremptory writ of mandate. This case presents the following issue: Did the trial court err in denying petitioner’s request for an order making findings concerning Special Immigrant Juvenile status (8 U.S.C. §1101(a)(27)(J); see Code Civ. Proc., § 155) and placing her in her mother’s sole legal and physical custody?

Review granted: 05/25/2016 | Oral argument: 06/06/2018
