COURT OF APPEALS
In the Matter of LaQUITA J. EADDY, Minor.
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
July 21, 1998
Wayne Juvenile Court
LC No. 93-310847
KEITH EADDY, SR.,
Before: Murphy, P.J., and Young, Jr. and Michael R. Smith*, JJ.
Respondent appeals as of right the juvenile court order terminating his parental rights to the
minor child pursuant to MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i), (g) and (h); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(c)(i), (g) and
(h). We affirm.
The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory grounds for termination were
established by clear and convincing evidence. MCR 5.974(I), In re Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445
NW2d 161 (1989). Further, respondent failed to show that termination of his parental rights was
clearly not in the child’s best interests. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re HallSmith, 222 Mich App 470; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Thus, the juvenile court did not err in terminating
respondent’s parental rights. Id.
