United States v. Leatherman
Federal Supplement 580: 977-981, 1983
A patient who had been committed to St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, D.C., after being found not guilty by reason of insanity petitioned for an injunction against the administration of psychotropic drugs, contending that until proven incompetent by a court, he was entitled to determine his own treatment. The District Court held that a court hearing on competency was not required to satisfy due process requirements. Since the hospital's evaluation showed the patient incompetent to make decisions about treatment for himself, the Court declined to intervene. (KIE abstract)
