More California Brain Death Disputes

In addition to the Jahi Mcath case, I was recently blogged about a few other brain death disputes in California.  

Last week, there was yet another court case.  Ashish Tyagi apparently drowned in his swimming pool.  He was declared dead at a Kaiser Permanente hospital in Santa Clara.  But the family filed a petition to keep Tyagi on a ventilator until an independent neurological exam from a non-Kaiser doctor could be conducted.

A Santa Clara County Superior Court judge denied the application after a day-long hearing.
