FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SCHIAVO APPELLATE COURT DENIES "PAPAL" APPEAL
DUNEDIN, FLORIDA, December 29, 2004--Florida's Second District Court of Appeal, in an order without opinion, has denied the appeal of THERESA SCHIAVO'S parents to reopen her case based upon a recent statement of Pope John Paul II. The parents' claim--that MRS. SCHIAVO would now choose to be tube fed due to the Pope's speech on the subject--was first rejected by the Pinellas County Probate Court in October.
MICHAEL SCHIAVO, MRS. SCHIAVO'S husband and Guardian, who chose not to file a brief in the parents' appeal, praised the appellate court's "prompt and definitive denial of the Schindlers' frivolous claim." The probate court's stay order, which has prevented the removal of MRS. SCHIAVO'S artificial life-support until resolution of the "Papal" appeal, will automatically terminate upon the issuance of the appellate court's mandate. The mandate will be issued in fifteen days, or upon denial of any motion for rehearing filed by the parents.
There is currently no stay preventing removal of the feeding tube in the constitutional litigation between MICHAEL SCHIAVO and Governor Bush, now pending in the United States Supreme Court.

Oh, my Lord!
Terri ping to 39! Please, Lord, do not let our pleas fall on deaf ears!
If anyone would like to be added to or removed from my Terri ping list, please let me know here or by Freepmail.
I thought the stay that Greer ordered would remain in effect until "all" legal appeals (including SCOTUS) were exhausted. Anyone?
Terri's estranged husband doesn't need to bother fighting in court, because he already owns the judge. Judge Greer is representing Michael Schiavo.
He's a shape shifter with friends in black robes. I was out all day. WHAT HORRID, DESPICABLE NEWS. The 2nd DCA must think that the Pope is just an old man. What a real shame. FREEDOM OF RELIGION IS DYING HERE IN FLORIDA. The Pope's a nobody???
So was FATHER MURPHY, I guess, who was run over by a car earlier in 2004.
