Investigation of Elderly Abuse not Constitutional Violation

A confidential report alleging that an individual in her eighties was the subject of financial mismanagement and abuse triggered a confidential investigation under the Older Adults Protective Services Act, to which the elder individual stymied, stonewalled, or ignored, leading to a court order for disclosure of financial records, entry of her house, and a medical examination, to which the elderly individual charged constitutional violations.  The court found that the procedures being followed were within the mandates of the act and that there were no violation to due process, notice, or any other constitutional violation.  In the Interest of A.M. An Older Adult, 3 Fid. Rep. 3d 129 (O.C. Chester 2013) (Opinion by Tunnell, J.)
