[size=18]Prosecutor: No Criminal Charges Expected In Brain Harvesting[/size]

There will be no criminal charges in the so-called brain harvesting case in Maine, according to Paula Silsby, the U.S. attorney for Maine.

The announcement came Wednesday upon conclusion of a state-federal probe into a Maryland research lab that collected at least 99 brains from deceased Mainers through the state medical examiner's office.

Civil lawsuits are still proceeding.

PORTLAND, Maine --A judge has ruled that a Portland man can have a jury decide whether his late wife's brain was taken for medical research without proper consent.

James Allen's wife died in a swimming pool accident in 2001. He filed a lawsuit after learning that her brain had been sent from Maine's state morgue to the Stanley Medical Research Institute in Bethesda, Md.[/quote]
