The Minnesota Supreme Court recently issued its long awaited opinion in the important case of In re: the Guardianship of Jeffers J. Tschumy.  In a divided opinion, the Court found that a professional guardian can order the removal of life-support from patients without court review, as long as there is no dispute about that decision among interested parties.  The case raised the difficult issue of what powers a guardian has over removing life support when a patient has no hope of recovery.  Please join the Health Law Section for a discussion of the Supreme Court’s decision by the two attorneys who litigated this important matter.

Please join us for breakfast beginning at 7:30 a.m., followed by the program from 8:00 - 9:00 a.m.

Breakfast will be provided.  Special meal requests need to be received no later than Tuesday, November 18.
