#16-150 In re F.T., S233479. (F072329; nonpublished opinion; Stanislaus County Superior Court; 516454.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal affirmed an order terminating parental rights. The court ordered briefing in F.T. and R.T. deferred pending decision in In re Isaiah W., S221263 (#14-123), which presents the following issue: Does a parent’s failure to appeal from a juvenile court order finding that notice under the Indian Child Welfare Act was unnecessary preclude the parent from subsequently challenging that finding more than a year later in the course of appealing an order terminating parental rights?
