Judge Nixes Stem Cell Lawsuit

One of the lawsuits against the California stem cell agency has been dismissed, but the major battle still remains scheduled for Nov. 17 in Hayward.

Reporter Laura Mecoy of The Sacramento Bee wrote: "A federal judge in Los Angeles dismissed a lawsuit Monday that threatened to cause more problems for the state's troubled stem cell research program, but the lawsuit could be revived in another court, according to the state attorney general's office."

"The lawsuit dismissed on Monday challenged the destruction of human embryos for stem cell research and sought to have embryos declared persons with constitutional rights," Mecoy said.

The hearing on the 17th involves constitutional objections by several conservative groups to the existence of the stem cell agency.
