Wisconsin Court of Appeals


Criminal Procedure — no merit reports

In this Wis. Stat. ch. 51 appeal, David N. appeals from an order committing him for mental health treatment and an order authorizing the involuntary administration of medication and treatment. David’s appellate counsel filed a no-merit report pursuant to Wis. Stat. Rule 809.32 and Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967). David received a copy of the report, was advised of his right to file a response, and has elected not to do so. After reviewing the record and counsel’s report, we conclude that there are no issues with arguable merit for appeal. Therefore, we summarily affirm the orders. See Rule 809.21.
