Iowa Appeals Court

JUDICIARY, FAMILY LAW - A mother and father challenged the termination of their parental rights on the basis that the juvenile court judge, who directed the state to file the termination petition, should not have been allowed to preside over the termination hearing. The Iowa Court of Appeals found no evidence of prejudice by the judge and determined that the mother exhibited no willingness to address the personal issues that led to child's removal from her care in the first place. Affirmed. See ruling.
