Insufficient Evidence Of Conflict

The Connecticut Appellate Court affirmed a trial court determination to grant custody of a minor child to foster parents. The biological mother had appealed, claiming that an attorney had labored under a conflict of interest in his dual roles as counsel and guardian ad litem to the child. The court here found that there was insufficient evidence that the trial court was aware of a conflict between the child's wishes and the lawyer's advocacy to warrant sua sponte inquiry into the issue.
