MAAS Wins First Round in Board Lawsuit!

Montanans Against Assisted Suicide (MAAS) has been engaged in an ongoing dispute with the Montana Board of Medical Examiners regarding the validity of "Position Statement No. 20."  The statement wrongfully implies that assisted suicide is legal in Montana.

On December 17, 2012, MAAS brought suit against the Board in Lewis and Clark County seeking judicial review, declaratory judgment and other relief.  A copy of MAAS's petition can be viewed by clicking here.  Attachments to that petition can be viewed by clicking here and here.

On June 5, 2013, the Board moved to limit the record on review to just two documents.  MAAS responded by arguing that the record included the Board's entire record on Position Statement No. 20, beginning in September 2011 and ending on November 16, 2012.  On June 20, 2013, Judge Mike Menahan agreed.  A copy of his order can be viewed here.
