In a Mother's petition for extraordinary relief, seeking to reverse a court order denying her further reunification services with respect to her three oldest children and seeking to stay a hearing under Welfare and Institutions Code section 366.26 that had been set on calendar, the petition is denied on the merits and the earlier stay of the hearing under 366.26 is lifted where: 1) although the court used the wrong statue in determining Mother's entitlement to additional reunification efforts, the error was harmless in light of the findings actually made; and 2) the court did not abuse its discretion in denying her further services and in setting a hearing under 366.26.
