Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Civil Commitment — sufficiency of the evidence
Nathan W. appeals from an order extending his civil commitment for mental health treatment. Nathan argues that Winnebago County failed to make the requisite showing of dangerousness, which in recommitment proceedings may be satisfied by showing that the individual would be a proper subject for commitment if treatment were withdrawn. Wis. Stat. § 51.20(1)(am). Because the evidence presented at Nathan’s commitment hearing and all the reasonable inferences therefrom support the commitment, we affirm. This opinion will not be published.
