Petition for review after the Court of Appeal dismissed an appeal from orders in a juvenile court proceeding. The court ordered briefing deferred pending decision in In re D.P., S267429 (#21-251), which presents the following issue: (1) Is an appeal of a juvenile court’s jurisdictional finding moot when a parent asserts that he or she has been or will be stigmatized by the finding? (2) Is an appeal of a juvenile court’s jurisdictional finding moot when a parent asserts that he or she may be barred from challenging a current or future placement on the Child Abuse Central Index as a result of the finding?

Petition for review granted; briefing deferred: 10/26/2022
