In re L.R.Annotate this Case
N.B. was the maternal grandmother of L.R. and the legal guardian of L.R.’s mother, who suffered from mental illness and had borderline intellectual functioning. L.R. was placed in foster care when she was two months old, and jeopardy orders were subsequently entered against both of L.R.’s parents. N.B. filed a motion requesting that L.R. be placed with her. The district court denied N.B.’s motion for kinship placement, concluding that it was not in L.R.’s best interest to be placed with N.B. Thereafter, N.B. appealed. The Supreme Court dismissed the appeal because it was interlocutory and barred by 22 Me. Rev. Stat. 4006.
