SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Doctors and state officials who tried to get chemotherapy for a Utah boy diagnosed with cancer five years ago were trying to save his life.
That's according to their lawyers, who asked a federal judge yesterday to throw out a lawsuit.
Daren and Barbara Jensen are suing two doctors, the state's former child-welfare chief and other government officials for violating their parental and constitutional rights.
The Jensens say their boy, Parker, never had a rare form of cancer and is doing fine.
U.S. District Judge Ted Stewart in Salt Lake City didn't immediately rule on the defendants' request to quash the lawsuit.
