RENO, Nev. (AP) — A man's bid to force a Nevada hospital to provide life support for his 20-year-old daughter goes back to court for arguments about standards for brain death and tests to prove it. The attorney for father Fanuel Gebreyes says he expects Saint Mary's Regional Medical Center to ask a judge to allow brain wave tests that weren't done last summer. Lawyers for the Reno hospital argue that the tests will show Aden Hailu (AY'-dehn HEHL'-oo) is brain-dead and a ventilator and intravenous tubes should be removed.
