Civil commitment

Appellant appealed from the judicial appeal panel's denial of his petition for provision discharge, full discharge, or transfer, arguing that he established a prima facie case for discharge and that the preponderance of the evidence supported a transfer. Appellant was civilly committed as a sexually psychopathic personality (SPP) and a sexually dangerous person (SDP)>  The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that appellant failed to establish a prima facie case for provisional or full discharge, and the panel's determination that appellant should not be transferred was not clearly erroneous.  Affirmed.
