FILED IN THE OFFICE OF THE CLERK OF SUPREME COURT APRIL 7, 2021 STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA IN THE SUPREME COURT STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA 2021 ND 64 In the Interest of S.R., a child State of North Dakota, Petitioner and Appellee v. S.R., a Child, D.C.B., Father, Respondents and T.R., Mother, Respondent and Appellant No. 20200214 In the Interest of W.R., a child State of North Dakota, Petitioner and Appellee v. W.R., a Child, D.C.B., Father, Respondents and T.R., Mother, Respondent and Appellant No. 20200215 Appeals from the Juvenile Court of Morton County, South Central Judicial District, the Honorable John W. Grinsteiner, Judge. AFFRMED. Per Curiam. Chase R. Lingle, Assistant State’s Attorney, Mandan, ND, for petitioner and appellee. Ashley K. Schell, Williston, ND, for respondent and appellant. Interest of S.R. & W.R. Nos. 20200214 & 20200215 Per Curiam. [¶1] T.R. appeals from the findings of fact and orders of permanency issued by a judicial referee on July 15, 2020, which found the deprivation of T.R.’s children would continue if they were to be returned to the parental home, and ordered the children remain in the custody of Three Rivers Human Service Zone. On July 24, 2020, after T.R. requested review, the juvenile court adopted the judicial referee’s findings and upheld the orders of permanency. On appeal, T.R. argues the judicial referee’s orders concluding her children would continue to be deprived were not supported by clear and convincing evidence. [¶2] Upon review of the juvenile court’s orders, we conclude the findings are supported by clear and convincing evidence and, therefore, are not clearly erroneous. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2). [¶3] Jon J. Jensen, C.J. Gerald W. VandeWalle Daniel J. Crothers Lisa Fair McEvers Jerod E. Tufte 1
