Assisted Suicide Law in California Overturned by JudgeLamar Green - June 16, 2018 17 0 COMMENTS
California — A state appeals court has reinstated California’s law allowing terminally ill people to end their lives.
The Fourth District Court of Appeals in Riverside issued an immediate stay Friday, putting the End of Life Option back into effect. The court also gave opponents of its decision until July 2 to file objections.
The law allows an adult to obtain a prescription for life-ending drugs if a doctor has determined the patient has six months or less to live.
Riverside County Superior Court Judge Daniel Ottolia ruled the law unconstitutional last month.
