No. 36803-6-I.

933 P.2d 441 (1997)

85 Wash.App. 535

In re the DETENTION OF: Kenneth DYDASCO. STATE of Washington, Appellant, v. Kenneth DYDASCO, Respondent.

Court of Appeals of Washington, Division 1.

March 31, 1997.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Gerald Smith, King County Prosecuting Atty. Office, Seattle, for Appellant.

Mary Perdue, Marian Leslie Nader, Seattle-King County Defender Association, Seattle, for Respondent.

GROSSE, Presiding Chief Judge.

Kenneth Dydasco was involuntarily committed for 90 days. This commitment was less restrictive than confinement. Before expiration, the State sought to extend this commitment for an additional 180 days by filing a petition otherwise sufficient, but on only 2 days' notice. We reverse the trial court's dismissal of this petition, and hold that the notice given was consistent with the statute and principles of due process.
