In re E.C.

The Pennsylvania Superior Court quashed the appeal of In re E.C. as interlocutory because the order at issue was a permanency order, which is not a final order. The father of two children appealed after a court of the juvenile division denied a request that his children be returned to him. The Superior Court reasoned that the juvenile division’s order did not grant or deny a status change, and the goal of reunification remained intact. The Court also held that permanency orders could not satisfy the test for an appealable collateral order.
