The Right To Die

Some time ago, I wrote about a Right to Die case in Boston in which my friend Gary was the attorney representing the family. In this case, the patient has Lou Gherig's disease and the family did not want her to die, but the hospital claimed it was cruel to keep the patient on life support.

Well, it seems the case has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the family and the hospital.

Gary and the lawyers for the hospital -- Mass General -- are under a gag order for the next week, but I would be very interested to find out.

A sidenote about Gary -- he's a therapist and a lawyer practicing both disciplines in the Boston area. And is a man of great integrity. More about Gary here.

As usual, Gary, it sounds like you did good.
