In re Adoption of K.A.S., 2016 UT 55 (Dec. 6, 2016)

Dec 6, 2016

The court held that denial of counsel to the indigent father in this appeal from a parental-rights termination order violated the father’s federal due process rights.  The father did not preserve the constitutional argument for appeal, but the court found that the exceptional circumstances exception to the preservation rule applied in the narrow circumstances of this case.
