Baxter v. Montana
354 Mont. 234 2009
Synopsis: The court affirmed the lower court's granting of summary judgment to the plaintiffs, patient Baxter, four doctors and a nonprofit organization on grounds that the state "gives terminally ill Montanans the right to autonomously choose what happens to them at the end of painful terminal illness." In this case, Baxter, a terminally ill cancer patient, wanted his doctor to prescribe a lethal dose of medication that Baxter would give himself to cause his own death at a time he chose.
