Just out of curiosity could Judge Greer be arrested and charged with murder or manslaughter? Those of you who are in the legal profession correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't most state's murder statutes written to state a person will be charged if they do something that results in the death of another person? Either by direct intent, accident, or reckless behavior?

Greer would have to be proven to be an accomplice to Schiavo if Schiavo was charged with murder. He could possibly be tried for judicial malpractice, negligence and wrongful death. But you have to have evidence.

I'm not in the legal profession. I just copied and pasted the Florida law and the links and then added what I thought.

I might look at it later this evening.

With judicial immunity--a protection judges have long granted themselves by common law--Greer can do anything he damn well pleases, as long as he's acting as a judge.
