The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted limited to the following question: Whether the Court of Appeals erred in rejecting petitioners argument that allowing the government to administer antipsychotic medication against his will solely to render him competent to stand trial for non-violent offenses would violate his rights under the First, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments.
