An appellate court in California has granted Compassion & Choices’ emergency motions for a “stay” of a Riverside County court’s decision in Ahn v. Hestrin to invalidate the End of Life Option Act.
This means that while the appellate court considers whether to uphold the lower court’s decision or reinstate the law permanently, eligible Californians will be able to access medical aid in dying.
