New case confirms illegality of assisted suicide in New York

The New York Court of Appeals recently issued a decision in the Myers v. Schneiderman matter. 30 N.Y.3d 1 (2017).  The case involved a group of terminally ill patients and medical providers who brought an action in New York, challenging the interpretation of the law prohibiting assisted suicide. Specifically, the plaintiffs sought a declaration carving out an exception in the law for physicians, allowing the prescription of lethal doses of drugs to mentally competent terminally ill patients.
