State Supreme Court allows 72-hour detention of Juveniles SAN FRANCISCO (AP)—Juveniles can be held for up to 72 hours, or a day longer than adults, before being given a hearing 10 determine the legality of the detention, the state Supreme Court ruled. In a 4-3 decision Tuesday, the court said that the 1991 U.S. Supreme Court ruling setting a 48-hour standard for reviewing an adult's detention did not apply to juveniles in California. The state's high court said California law is more flexible and more protective toward juveniles than adults. But the state court ruled unconstitutional a provision of the California law allowing a juvenile's detention hearing to be delayed beyond 72 hours because of weekends and holidays. The court said 72 hours was the absolute maximum. Kids weren't lion about roars in basement DETROIT (AP) — For weeks, residents heard roaring from the basement of a vacant house. Dogs, some thought. Others knew differently. A hungry young lion was found Monday night by police officers called to investigate. A staffer from a nearby wildlife shelter tranquilized the 8-monih- old, 150-pound lion and took the malnourished animal to the shelter. Residents told police they figured dogs had been making the noise, but neighbor Billie Whetstone said he had known the lion was there. He said it was friendly. Authorities were investigating whether the home's previous tenants left the cat or whether it showed up after (he house was vacated.

Instead, under a theory called "enterprise liability," patients harmed by a doctor or hospital would sue the health plan that paid for their medical care. The White House health reform task force is also considering other changes in malpractice law, including caps on damages awarded for pain and suffering and encouraging patients and providers to resolve disputes without going to court. Consumer groups and organized medicine alike have misgivings abouft some of the possible changes. "Enterprise liability is sort of a black hole," said Gene Kimmelman, legislative director for the Consumer Federation of America, who said it was .'unclear whether injured patients would gel more redress or less under such a system. Link sought between diet and disease WASHINGTON (AP) — Imbibing three alcoholic drinks may reduce heart attack risk. But then again, it may increase chances of breast cancer. Doctors still don't fully understand how diet affects health. "We all want to know what is the best diet to maintain health," said Joseph T. Judd, a scientist at the Agriculture Department's Human Nutrition Research Center in Beltsville, Md. Marsha E. Reichman, a former researcher at the National Cancer Institute, said diet "is tremendously ' important" to maintaining health. "It could well affect our risks of disease," she said Tuesday. Yet, medical science doesn't know precisely how various foods affect the body. .' If science can find the perfect diet, people could better control their own destiny, Reichman said. "It may make it much more possible in the future for people to defend their own health" by what they chose to eat, she said. "What we take into our bodies is something we have control over." Researchers worldwide are studying the effects of vitamins, vegetables, fats and other nutrients on the diseases that kill people. And in such work, "alcohol is just another food ingredient to us," said Judd. Some epidemiology studies have shown that women who drink have more breast cancer than teetotalers. Other theories had suggested, that hormones, particularly estrogen and its chemical relatives, play a role in the development of breast cancer. Judd's team at the Beltsville lab, along with Reichman and other researchers at the National Institutes of Health, organized a small controlled study to see if they could prove a link between alcohol and estrogen. Results of the study were published today in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The idea has been championed by two law professors, Paul C. Weiler of Harvard Law School and Kenneth S. Abraham of the University of Virginia School of Law, who argue that malpractice suits should be aimed at organizations. Ira Magaziner, the senior White House official directing the task force, said Monday that Clinton's reform plan would include "serious malpractice reform" to discourage frivolous lawsuits and encourage alternative methods of resolving disputes. "We need to get the lawyers out of the doctor-patient relationship," Magaziner told the National Medical Association. The administration is motivated in pan by the desire to get doctors to stop ordering costly tests and procedures simply to protect themselves from being sued. A recent study by the consulting firm of Lewin-VHI Inc. estimated Americans could save $36 billion over five years by curbing so- called defensive medicine.
