CWN Editor's Note: Responding to a last-minute intervention by the UN’s Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, a French court has ordered doctors to resume the supply of food and water to Vincent Lambert, the quadriplegic at the center of a contentious legal debate. The court ruling came on May 20 after doctors had cut off food and water, on the basis of an earlier court ruling.
