New Jersey: More Coverage/Commentary on Betancourt Ruling

A later story by Sue Epstein has been published in the New Jersey Star-Ledger.  This article is a little more detailed than the first and includes a brief comment by Anne Studholme, who represented NDY and our co-amici.

The Wall Street Journal also published an article about the decision, written by Suzanne Sataline.

New Jersey Today published an editorial that concludes that the court’s “sidestepping” of the issues in the case means that health care providers are free to overrule families in life-and-death decisions.  Thaddeus Pope has responded on his blog.  He points out that the court’s dismissal leaves the original ruling in place – and decisionmaking in the hands of families and/or the individual.  –Stephen Drake
