In the Interest of J.S.William Pryatel, M.D., Petitioner and Appellee
J.S., Respondent and Appellant
Appeal from the District Court of Stutsman County, Southeast Judicial District, the Honorable Ronald E. Goodman, Judge.
Charles J. Gilje and Kenneth L. Dalsted (argued), Special Assistant Attorneys General, 208 Second Avenue SW, P.O. Box 1727, Jamestown, N.D. 58402-1727, for petitioner and appellee.
Randall L. Hoffman, 216 Northland Estates, Jamestown, N.D. 58401, for respondent and appellant.
Interest of J.S.
[¶1] On remand, based on this Court's opinion in Interest of J.S., 2001 ND 10, the district court entered written findings of fact and conclusions of law regarding the continued treatment of J.S. at the State Hospital and the availability of less restrictive treatment. Relying on the testimony of both Dr. William Pryatel and J.S., the district court concluded J.S. is a danger to himself or others if not treated. The district court also concluded less restrictive treatment is not possible because the testimony established J.S. would not remain on prescribed medication under less restrictive conditions. Concluding the district court's continuing treatment order is based on findings of fact that are not clearly erroneous, we summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
