FILED: March 12, 2008
IN THE COURT OF APPEALS OF THE STATE OF OREGON
In the Matter of N. L.,
Alleged to be a Mentally Ill Person.
STATE OF OREGON,
Multnomah County Circuit Court
Connie L. Isgro, Judge pro tempore.
Submitted on record and briefs February 1, 2008.
Liza Langford filed the brief for appellant.
Hardy Myers, Attorney General, Mary H. Williams, Solicitor General, and Denis M. Vannier, Assistant Attorney General, filed the brief for respondent.
Before Haselton, Presiding Judge, and Armstrong and Rosenblum, Judges.
Appellant in this mental commitment case appeals a judgment committing him to the Mental Health Division for treatment for a period of time not to exceed 180 days. ORS 426.130. The trial court found that appellant suffers from a mental disorder and is unable to provide for his basic personal needs. The state concedes that the record lacks clear and convincing evidence that defendant's mental illness causes him to be unable to provide for his basic personal needs. On de novo review, we find the state's concession to be well-founded and accept it.
