Judge's Statement

Ambiguity clause: I will judge this claim based on its precise wording, unless this wording conflicts with my perception of the intent of the claim. If both intent and wording are ambiguous, I will look for a solution that causes the least damage to FX as a market and game. If you have any questions, or think you may have found a loophole, please contact me!!

Some facts from the "Chronology of events related to assisted suicide", at http://www.rtl.org/lbpchron.htm:

  • February 12, 1996: Trial begins for Jack Kevorkian for the 1993 deaths of Merian Fredricks and Dr. Ali Khalili.
  • March 8, 1996: The jury in the Kevorkian trial find him not guilty of assisting in suicides. The jury used an exemption in the law for doctors using medications to relieve pain as its basis for acquittal. They claimed Kevorkian was only relieving suffering, not trying to cause death.
  • April 1, 1996: The third assisted suicide trial of Jack Kevorkian begins in the cases of Sharon Miller and Marjorie Wanz. Kevorkian showed up wearing Colonial-era clothing to show how medieval the charges were.
  • May 14, 1996: The jury acquitted Kevorkian of assisted suicide charges, after three days of deliberations. They believed his intent was to relieve the suffering not to kill the person.
