Ward Can Be Committed AND Under Guardianship

court opinionThe Minnesota Court of Appeals issued an unpublished decision this week which confirms that an individual may be subject to commitment as a mentally ill person AND at the same time have a guardian.  The Court cited to the broad powers that can be given to a guardian, versus the relatively narrow scope of a committment treatment order.  For the full opinion (which focused on whether it was error for the district court not to restore the ward to capacity), see In the Matter of the Guardianship of Joy Bostrom, Minn. Ct. App. A13-0826.
