IN THE MATTER OF THE CIVIL COMMITMENT OF U.C. A-5012-09T2

IN THE MATTER OF THE CIVIL COMMITMENT OF U.C.           A-5012-09T2 
     The Legislature has delegated exclusive authority to the Division of Developmental Disabilities to determine the appropriate placement of a developmentally disabled person eligible for its services.  Therefore, a trial court that has placed a developmentally disabled civil committee on "continued extension pending placement" (CEPP) status lacks the authority to order the Division to fund that person's placement in a particular facility the court determines to be most appropriate.  01-20-12
