Fonseca v. Kaiser – Briefing on Stay from Ninth Circuit

Since the district court’s stay expires tomorrow,

the parties in the Fonseca v. Kaiser brain death dispute have submitted briefing on an “Emergency Motion under Circuit Rule 27-3.”  I have posted the briefs filed on May 19.


The Ninth Circuit should rule tomorrow on whether the stay will be extended for two or more months until the appeal is decided.
