Lawrence Didier, Respondent and Appellant No. 20200217 Appeal from the District Court of Stutsman County, Southeast Judicial District, the Honorable Cherie L. Clark, Judge. AFFIRMED. Per Curiam. Joseph K. Nwoga, Assistant State’s Attorney, Jamestown, ND, for petitioner and appellee. Tyler J. Morrow, Grand Forks, ND, for respondent and appellant. Matter of Didier No. 20200217 Per Curiam. [¶1] Lawrence Didier appeals from a district court order denying his petition for discharge from civil commitment. Didier argues the order denying his discharge from civil commitment was not supported by clear and convincing evidence he remains a sexually dangerous individual. Under our modified clearly erroneous standard of review, we conclude the district court’s findings of fact and order are supported by clear and convincing evidence. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2). [¶2] Jon J. Jensen, C.J. Gerald W. VandeWalle Daniel J. Crothers Lisa Fair McEvers Jerod E. Tufte 1
