MT. VERNON, Mo. — A federal judge refused today to order state health officials to resume feeding Nancy Cruzan, a week after nourishment was halted to the woman who's in a vegetative state.
Earlier today, the Missouri Supreme Court and a Cole County court turned down two separate, similar requests.
U.S. District Judge Dean Whipple in Kansas City, who issued the ruling, scolded protesters for going from court to court seeking such an action.
