Update: The California End of Life Option Act is back in effect!
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. The appeals court also granted a motion by Attorney General Xavier Becerra for a “discretionary stay” of the lower court ruling.
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.
