Article Title

On Being Imposed Upon by Artful Or Designing Persons - The California Experience with the Involuntary Placement of the Aged

Document Type



This Article is principally concerned with the deprivation of liberty inherent in forced placement. However, this Article will concentrate on California Surrogate management standards because they provide a better frame of reference for the assumptions which underlie various types of involuntary interventions, and because they are closer to the open-ended commitment statutes of many other states.
