The Kansas Supreme Court released the following published decision today:
Appeal No. 115,309: In re the Adoption of T.M.M.H. Kansas Court of Appeals decisions released today
The Supreme Court rejected the appeal of a grandmother with shared legal custody of her grandson in this case from Johnson County District Court. The grandmother argued she should be allowed to fully participate in court proceedings related to a stepparent adoption of her grandson. In a divided decision, three members of the court concluded the grandmother failed to prove she had standing to participate and a fourth member concluded the grandmother did not have a legal right to participate. A minority of the court would have granted her the right.
