WI Court of Appeals – District IV
Case Name: Jackson County v. C.A.D.
Case No.: 2020AP69
Officials: NASHOLD, J.
Focus: Involuntary Commitment – Extension
C.A.D. appeals a February 1, 2019 order of the circuit court extending his involuntary commitment for a 12-month period. The extension, also referred to in this opinion as a recommitment, expired on or about February 1, 2020. For the reasons set forth below, I conclude that C.A.D.’s challenge to the recommitment order is moot and that C.A.D. has not shown that an exception to the mootness doctrine applies. Accordingly, C.A.D.’s appeal is dismissed.
