Minnesota Court of Appeals to Decide Guardian Power to Stop Life Support


On October 18, 2012, the Hennepin County (MN) District Court issued a written opinion in In re Tschumy, holding that guardians under the court’s jurisdiction must ask the court for authorization to terminate life support.  

That decision was appealed.  After some preliminary briefing on jurisdiction, the Court of Appeals has agreed to hear the case on the merits on May 15, 2013 at 10:40 a.m.
