No. C2-01-46.

627 N.W.2d 113 (2001)

In the Matter of Lashawnda BROWN.

Court of Appeals of Minnesota.

June 5, 2001.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Linda L. Bogut, Minneapolis, MN, (for appellant).

Amy Klobuchar, Hennepin County Attorney; John L. Kirwin, Assistant County Attorney, Minneapolis, MN, (for respondent).

Considered and decided by WILLIS, Presiding Judge, HANSON, and FOLEY, Judges.



Appellant contests a district court order continuing her commitment as mentally ill. Appellant argues that the expiration of her initial commitment precluded consideration of the respondent's late-filed report recommending continued commitment, and that the district court could not avoid that expiration by an ex parte order extending the commitment until a hearing could be held. We reverse and remand.
