Diana Miller Argues In the Interest of D.D., Minor Child Before Iowa Supreme Court


Divorce and family law attorney Diana Miller argued In the Interest of D.D., Minor Child (Case No. 20-0330) on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 before the Iowa Supreme Court in Des Moines, Iowa. 

The father of the minor child seeks further review after the court of appeals affirmed the dismissal of this child-in-need-of-assistance proceeding after concluding the purposes of the dispositional order have been sufficiently accomplished and the continuation of supervision, care, or treatment is unjustified or unwarranted. The father contends the minor child cannot be considered safe when she lives in a home with her sexual abuser and the child’s mother refuses to believe the sexual abuse occurred.

The Iowa Supreme Court has received oral argument in the case. The case is now considered fully submitted to the Court. No specific timeline has been set for a ruling.
