Huber, Jeffrey T.
Death Studies, v17 n3 p225-32 1993
Notes that diagnosis of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) continues to denote death sentence. Contends that AIDS is unique terminal illness in that no other single disease in history of American legal system has generated more litigation than AIDS. Examines medico-legal issues associated with AIDS-related death: estate planning, discrimination, insurance, long-term care, right to die, suicide. (Author/NB)
