Matter of C.J.S.

No. 20120370

Per Curiam.

1] Glenn Stegman appealed from a district court judgment changing his minor child's surname. On appeal, Stegman argues the notice of hearing was insufficient because the instructions to appear by telephone were confusing and vague, and the district court erred because it did not find there was a proper and reasonable cause for the name change and did not find that the name change was in the best interests of the child. We affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
