Mancia v. Ark. Dep't of Human Servs. (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After Appellant's parental rights were terminated, Appellant timely filed a notice of appeal. The record was untimely tendered to the Supreme Court's clerk, however. Appellant subsequently filed a motion for rule on clerk and for belated appeal. Appellant's attorney admitted fault and was responsible for the failure to perfect the appeal. In accordance with McDonald v. State, which states that the failure of an attorney to timely perfect an appeal is good reason for the appeal not being timely perfected, the Supreme Court granted Appellant's motion and forwarded a copy of this opinion to the Committee on Professional Conduct.
