Leading judges are due to issue their rulings on three cases this morning in the latest round of a right-to-die legal battle started by the locked-in syndrome sufferer Tony Nicklinson. They are:
- The family of the late Mr Nicklinson's appeal to challenge the illegality of assisted suicide.
- Paralysed road accident victim Paul Lamb's bid to make right-to-die legal.
- A third man, a locked-in syndrome sufferer referred to as "Martin", who wants to be allowed a "dignified suicide".
Locked-in syndrome sufferer Tony Nicklinson's widow and a paralysed victim have pledged to continue to challenge right-to-die law.
Locked-in syndrome sufferer Tony Nicklinson campaigned for years to win the right to end his life. Here is the timeline of his struggle.
