107. There is probably a schedule mandated by law
for how long you may hold someone before releasing them, and I'm guessing a hearing would be scheduled more or less automatically based on the date of admittance.

As far as an exam, it's probable that Ivins saw a doc on the day he went in and possibly saw a doctor doing rounds during the time he was there. In order to be diagnosed, he'd need an extended exam and perhaps testing, right? :shrug:

The only person alleging mental illness is someone unqualified to diagnose. We have reports by friends that say he was upset and despirited but, given his situation, that's not abnormal. If this man had severe mental illness, he would probably be unable to function well enough to follow his lawyer's recommendation because he was in the middle of a crisis.
