Supreme Court upholds right to sue public nursing homes

  • The US Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the family of a nursing home resident with dementia over claims that his rights were violated by being given drugs to make him easier to manage. The court declined to use the case to limit the ability of people to sue for civil rights violations under Section 1983 of federal law, which would have affected those in federal programs like Medicare and Medicaid.
  • The court upheld the lower court's ruling that allowed the family to sue the government-run facility, rejecting the argument that lawsuits could be prevented under federal nursing home legislation.
