Supreme Court Rules in Gonzales v. Oregon

On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the federal government didn't have the authority to stop Oregon doctors from prescribing federally-controlled substances to assist in the suicides of their patients by a vote of 6-3.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined Justice Thomas and Scalia in dissent.

Here's an old Wesley Smith piece for background information.

UPDATE: The opinion is here.
