PETITION OF: C.L.F., NATURAL MOTHER
Petition for Allowance of Appeal from the Order of the Superior Court Application for Appointment of Counsel
AND NOW, this 9th day of June, 2010, the Petition for Allowance of Appeal is hereby GRANTED. The matter is remanded to the trial court for a determination of whether Petitioner is eligible for the appointment of counsel. See In re Adoption of R.I., 312 A.2d 601 (Pa. 1973).
