In re K.B., 2017 UT App 210, 407 P.3d 1084 (Nov. 16, 2017).

Nov 16, 2017

The juvenile court granted a request for an order of protective supervision, based on its finding that the mother exhibited hatred of and disgust toward the father, which caused emotional harm to the children. Reversing in part and remanding, the court of appeals held that insufficient evidence supported a finding of abuse, where there was no indication that a disagreement over a prom dress or purported custodial interference caused the child to suffer emotional harm that resulted in a “serious impairment in [their] growth, development, behavior, or psychological functioning.” Utah Code Ann. § 78A-6-105(24)(b).
