Vincent Lambert, 42, died in a hospital nine days after doctors stopped providing artificial feeding and hydration, ending years of legal flip-flopping over whether to keep him alive. Stopping treatment came four days after France's highest court quashed a Paris court decision to resume feeding so the United Nations could examine the case.A 2008 car crash left Lambert in a vegetative state that required artificial feeding to keep him alive.The European Court of Human Rights and the Council of State, France's top administrative body, had upheld the doctors' earlier decision to stop Lambert's life support, with the court finding the move didn't violate Lambert's rights.
