Decision reached in Cherrix case

Judge Glen Tyler proceeded in Solomon-like fashion today over a consent decree in the Abraham Cherrix case today.

As reported in the Virginian Pilot, Cherrix and his parents agreed to a compromise deal that would allow him to pursue treatments he wants for his cancer, while working with a radiation oncologist in Mississippi for more conventional radiation therapy. This seems to be the best possible way out for all parties, and Abraham seems pleased with the decision, exclaiming, “We finally got our freedom!” to reporters after leaving the courtroom. Judge Tyler closed the proceedings with an unusual proclamation for someone in his position: “God bless you, Mr. Cherrix.”
