In re Ashman, No. A20-1586 (Minn. Ct. App. 2021)
Nature of Case: Appellant is civilly committed, and was granted a transfer to a community setting which was subsequently revoked. Appellant sought review of the revocation from the Special Review Board and it was upheld. He then sought review from the commitment appeal panel, which decided, inter alia, that it lacked statutory authority to hear the appeal.
Holding: The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that, under state law, the commitment appeal panel had authority to hear Appellant’s appeal regarding the revocation of the transfer.
