The Court also held that the committing court, "... a tribunal composed of the judge of the court of common pleas of Allen county, the superintendent of the Lima state hospital, an alienist to be designated by said judge and superintendent, or a majority of them," can make the "restored to reason" determination and order release. This note focuses on the relationship between acquittal and release standards.
