Involuntary Commitment and Medication

WI Court of Appeals – District III

Case Name: Outagamie County v. J.J.H.,

Case No.: 2021AP244

Officials: STARK, P.J.

Focus: Involuntary Commitment and Medication

Jason appeals from orders extending his WIS. STAT. ch. 51 involuntary commitment, and for his involuntary medication and treatment. Jason challenges the sufficiency of the evidence establishing that he was dangerous to himself or others under any of the standards set forth in WIS. STAT. § 51.20(1)(a)2. We reverse the recommitment order and the associated order for involuntary medication and treatment because the court failed to make specific factual findings with reference to the statutory basis for its determination of dangerousness as required by Langlade County v. D.J.W., 2020 WI 41, 391 Wis. 2d 231, 942 N.W.2d 277.
