HARRY MARCEL LIPSCOMB,
Wayne Juvenile Court
LC No. 94-313283
SANDRA LYNN LIPSCOMB,
Before: Sawyer, P.J., and Wahls and Hoekstra, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from a juvenile court order terminating his parental
rights to the minor children under MCL 712A.19b(3)(a)(ii), (c)(i), (g), and (i); MSA
27.3178(598.19b)(3)(a)(ii), (c)(i), (g), and (i). We affirm.
The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that statutory grounds for termination under §§
19b(3)(a)(ii), (c)(i) and (g) were established by clear and convincing evidence. MCR 5.974(I); In re
Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445 NW2d 161 (1989). Further, respondent-appellant failed to show that
termination of his parental rights was clearly not in the children’s best interests. MCL 712A.19b(5);
MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); MCR 5.974(E)(2); In re Hall-Smith, 222 Mich App 470, 472-473; 564
NW2d 156 (1997). Thus, the juvenile court did not err in terminating respondent-appellant’s parental
rights to the children. Id.
