T.D. v. New York State Off. of Mental Health – Case Brief Summary (New York)

In T.D. v. New York State Off. of Mental Health (228 AD2d 95, 124 [1st Dept 1966]) the Court wrote:

"We are not dealing here with parental choice among reasonable treatment alternatives, but with a decision to subject the child to nontherapeutic treatments and procedures that may cause harmful permanent or fatal side effects. It follows therefore that a parent or guardian, let alone another adult who may be a member of the child's family, may not consent to have a child submit to painful and/or potentially life-threatening research procedures that hold no prospect of benefit for the child and that may have the same result as a denial of necessary medical treatment."
