In re D.L.B.

The Law Division denied a law enforcement officer’s petition for a final extreme risk protective order that would have compelled D.L.B. to surrender her firearms. The State appealed and argued it showed by a preponderance of the evidence that D.L.B. posed the requisite danger to self or others. The Appellate Division reversed and remanded because the trial court did not admit critical evidence, did not require or ensure the State presented information and evidence upon which it relied in support of its petition, and did not make essential findings of fact.
