Minn. Prosecutor To Appeal Assisted Suicide Ruling

A Minnesota law banning the offering of advice or encouragement about how to commit suicide is an unconstitutional restriction on free speech, the state appeals court ruled Monday. The decision by a three-judge panel of the Minnesota Court of Appeals was hailed as a “grand slam” victory by Robert Rivas, an attorney for the Final Exit Network. Two members of the national right-to-die group are charged in the 2007 suicide of Doreen Dunn, a 57-year-old Apple Valley woman who had suffered from chronic pain for more than a decade. Prosecutors “don’t have one scintilla of evidence from the scene” to support the charges that the two Final Exit Network members assisted in Dunn’s suicide, Rivas said.
