Donley v. Donley (Majority, with Concurring and Dissenting)Annotate this Case
Kisha Donley was awarded permanent guardianship of M.B., the daughter of Kisha’s half sister, Temika Donley. One year later, Temika filed a petition to remove the guardianship, arguing that the guardianship was no longer necessary. The circuit court granted Kisha’s motion for directed verdict, concluding that the guardianship was still necessary and that termination of the guardianship was not in M.B.’s best interest. The court of appeals affirmed. The Supreme Court reversed, holding that the circuit court erred when it applied the wrong legal standard for the termination proceeding. Remanded.
