OPINION

[261 Or.App. 112] PER CURIAM

Appellant seeks reversal of a judgment continuing to commit him as a mentally ill person for a period not to exceed 180 days. ORS 426.307. Among other contentions, appellant argues that, contrary to the trial court's ruling, the record does not establish by clear and convincing evidence that he is a danger to himself or others because of a mental disorder. See ORS 426.005(1)(e). The state concedes that the evidence is legally insufficient for involuntary commitment and that the judgment should be reversed. We agree, accept the state's concession, and reverse.

Reversed.
