UNPUBLISHED CIVIL OPINIONS FROM THE MINNESOTA COURT OF APPEALS

A07-1890

In the Matter of the Welfare of the Children of:
C. P. B., III,
and J. A. B.-T.,
Parents

KLAPHAKE, Judge
On August 31, 2007, the district court terminated the parental rights of
appellant J. A. B.-T to her two children, H.B., born August 4, 1992, and
C.B., born January 31, 1998. The district court's termination order
relied on four statutory bases: abandonment, failure to comply with
parental duties, failure to contribute to the children's financial
support, and palpable unfitness, all in violation of Minn. Stat. ?
260C.301, subd. 1(b) (1)-(4) (2006). The court also found that
termination is in the children's best interests. Because the record
provides clear and convincing evidence that appellant abandoned the
children and that termination is in their best interests, we affirm.

A07-1694

In the Matter of the
Welfare of the Children of:
M.T. and E.T., Sr., Parents.

CRIPPEN, Judge
Appellants challenge the findings of fact leading to the
termination of the mother's parental rights for four children. Because
the findings are adequately supported by the evidence, we affirm.

A07-0866

Randy Allen Polzin, petitioner,
Appellant,

vs.

Commissioner of Public Safety,
Respondent.

SCHELLHAS, Judge
Appellant challenges a district court order sustaining the revocation of
his driving privileges under the implied-consent statute, Minn. Stat. ?
169A.52, subd. 4 (2006). Appellant argues that his right to counsel was
not vindicated. Because we find that appellant was given a reasonable
amount of time to contact an attorney of his own choosing, we affirm.
= = = =
A07-0734
A07-0735

Muyuka Mutanga,
Relator,

vs.

Commissioner of Human Services,
Respondent (A07-734),

KALITOWSKI, Judge
Relator Muyuka Mutanga challenges refusals by the Department of Human
Services (DHS) and the Department of Health (MDH) to set aside his
disqualification from working in any position allowing direct contact
with individuals receiving services from certain state-licensed
facilities. Relator argues that the record does not support the
commissioners' determinations that he poses a risk of harm to persons
served by the licensed entities. We affirm.
= = = =
A06-2410

William E. Schocker,
Appellant,

vs.

John R. Schocker,
Respondent,

Deanna Y. Schocker,
Respondent.

KALITOWSKI, Judge
Appellant William E. Schocker challenges the district court's
,500 damage award in favor of respondents John R. Schocker and Deanna
Y. Schocker, appellant's nephew and his wife. Specifically, appellant
argues that the district court's finding that appellant exceeded the
scope of his easement over respondents' land, thereby causing damage to
the road, was not supported by the record. We affirm.
= = = =
A06-1338

David Michael Turner, petitioner,
Appellant,

vs.

Commissioner of Public Safety,
Respondent.

KALITOWSKI, Judge
Appellant David Michael Turner challenges the district court
judgment sustaining his driver's license revocation pursuant to the
implied-consent law, arguing that his due process rights were violated.
We affirm.
