On February 11th, DRLC filed a lawsuit in San Francisco Superior Court to clarify the ability of mentally competent, terminally ill California patients to obtain aid in dying from their physician. The plaintiffs, consisting of patients and doctors, are asking the court to declare that physicians who provide a prescription for medication to a mentally competent terminally ill patient should not be subject to criminal prosecution under existing California law.
