Case No.: 2019AP1033

Officials: NASHOLD, J.

Focus: Prisoner – Involuntary Commitment

S.A.M. challenges an order of the circuit court extending his involuntary commitment for a six-month period. The extension, also referred to in this opinion as a recommitment, expired on or about February 1, 2019. For the reasons set forth below, I conclude that S.A.M.’s challenge to the recommitment order is moot and that S.A.M. has not shown that an exception to the mootness doctrine applies. Therefore, S.A.M.’s appeal is dismissed.
