J. D. v. M. B. and V. B., [Ms. 2150129, Aug. 12, 2016] __ So. 3d __ (Ala. Civ. App. 2016). The Court of Civil Appeals dismisses an appeal from the determination of the Morgan probate court granting a right of adoption to a stepfather upon concluding the child's natural father did not timely file a notice of appeal from that judgment and did not properly appeal from the probate court's denial of his request for an extension of time to file a notice of appeal pursuant to Rule 77(d), Ala. R. Civ. P. (rule governing situations in which a party claims lack of notice of the entry of a judgment or order deprived the party of the opportunity to timely file a notice of appeal).
