Whether Appeal of Jurisdictional Finding is Moot When Jurisdiction Had Been Terminated in the Interim, Even though Parents Might Be Registered on the Child Abuse Central Index

(1) Is an appeal of a juvenile court's jurisdictional finding moot when a parent asserts that he or she has been or will be stigmatized by the finding? (2) Is an appeal of a juvenile court's jurisdictional finding moot when a parent asserts that he or she may be barred from challenging a current or future placement on the Child Abuse Central Index as a result of the finding?

This case includes the following issue: Was the appeal from the order sustaining jurisdiction under Welfare and Institutions Code section 300, subdivision (b), moot when jurisdiction had been terminated in the interim, even though the child's parents might be registered on the Child Abuse Central Index? (In re D.P. (Feb. 10, 2021, B301135) [nonpub. opn.], review granted 5/26/2021 (S267429).)
