Outagamie County v. Melanie L., 2012AP99, WSC review granted 11/14/12

on review of unpublished decisioncase activity

Issue (composed by On Point) 

Whether the county adequately proved that Melanie L. is incompetent to exercise informed consent, in that: the county’s expert testified that she was incapable of applying an understanding “to her advantage” instead of “to … her mental illness … in order to make an informed choice” (§ 51.61(1)(g)4.b.); and she recognizes she is mentally ill and needs medication, and was taking a psychotropic medication at her own request.
