Hearing on FEN Constitutional Challenge to Minnesota Assisted Suicide Staute

The U.S. District Court for Minnesota will hold a hearing on the State of Minnesota’s motion to dismiss a complaint brought by Final Exit Network that challenges the constitutionality of the state assisted suicide statute.


The Minnesota Attorney General moved to dismiss the action because: (1) she is not a proper party under the Eleventh Amendment, (2) FEN’s injuries are not traceable to the AG, (3) the lawsuit is barred by the Rooker-Feldman doctrine, and (4) it is barred by collateral estoppel. The AG also argues that FEN’s lawsuit fails on the merits.
