In Interest of B.T.B., 2020 UT 36 (June 22, 2020)

Jun 22, 2020

In this termination of parental rights case, the supreme court held that the court of appeals properly disavowed prior case law that suggested that termination almost automatically followed a determination that the statutory grounds had been met.  The court also clarified the standard for applying the “strictly necessary” language in the Termination of Parental Rights Act.
