Fresno County Removed from Rivera Case

August 13, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
Fresno County's public guardian has been removed from a controversial right to life case. The family of Janet Rivera has been fighting against the county to keep the woman alive.

On Wednesday, the county asked to leave the case since the family has been involved, and a judge granted the request.

Rivera is in a vegetative state and being housed in a Fresno specialized health care facility. At one time the guardian removed life support believing Rivera would never recover.

With the county out of the case, Rivera's family can make her medical decisions.
