The Psychological Consequences of Judicial Procedures: Implications for Civil Commitment Hearings, 46 Southern Methodist University Law Review 433-448 (1992)

Abstract

A key Supreme Court decision regarding involuntary civil commitment hearings is Parham v. J.R. In Parham, the Supreme Court ruled that minors are not entitled to a hearing prior to involuntary admission into a state mental hospital because state psychiatrists, those otherwise responsible for making the admissions decision, could act as a "neutral factfinder."
