San Diego County Health & Human Serv. Agency v. Deidre B., No. D054783
In a petition by a County Public Conservator to reestablish a conservatorship of an individual under the Lanterman-Petris-Short (LPS) Act on the grounds that she remained gravely disabled and was unable to provide for her basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter, trial court's decision reestablishing conservatorship is affirmed where: 1) the trial court did not violate the individual's due process rights by accepting a stipulation filed by her attorney stating she consented to the reestablishment and waived her right to a formal hearing; and 2) the individual's assertion that the court should consider a post-judgment declaration in which she raises new factual allegations challenging her knowing consent to the stipulated reestablishment is rejected.
