It means that the judge is directly defying an act of Congress which explicitly extended jurisdiction.

This is the Florida State Supreme Court, not the Federal Court. You need to ask the moderators to update the title before all you know what breaks loose here.

No, just to clarify, this is not an order from the Federal District Court. This is an FL. Sup. Ct. issued order dealing with the earlier petition filed with the FL Supreme Ct. by the House of Rep. attys.

If this is authentic, it is a kick in the arse to Congress! What a jerk to hold off this long! It has not been reported on news or anything.

No, this is a Florida Supreme Court decision. Still no word from the U.S. District Court judge.

This has to do with the House subcommittee's subpoena of Michael and Terri Schiavo.

This is Florda Supreme Court.
Shiavo is in Federal court now, right?

This appears to be throwing out the Congressional subpoena of Terri on final appeal, but I'll check further.

Thanks for clarifying this. I think we are all sitting on pins and needles and the very word " Florida Court" sets us all in motion. False alarm. Back to our corners!!!!!

Federal marshalls should go to Florida NOW, to secure the physical safety of Terri: 0) whose life directly threatened by irregular judicial actions intended to kill her; 1) who is or may soon be a witness before Congress; and 2) who appears to be the victim of an active, intentional, ongoing conspiracy involving the Florida judiciary itself to deprive her of her rights.

..so they can appeal now to Atlanta?..

unlikely, if this is a FLSSC ruling..since the fed. judge was appointed by the 'RATs, he may reflect their anti-life/pro-death mindset.

Well, if this is indeed the SCOFFLAws blowing off Congress, I remind them of their reasoning for their decision to strike down the law giving Jeb Bush the right to intervene for Terry Shiavo, that the Legislature and Executive branches overstepped their authority.

Now it seems that the SCOFFLAws have overstepped theirs. Time to hold some people in contempt of Congress.

You should take this off breaking news, this has nothing to do with what happened in congress last night. This may confuse people thinking that they are ruleing on the congress action.

We are beyond State court now.. This ruleing means nothing.

This is a ruling from the Florida Supremes on the petition of the US House to request any and all appropriate relief regarding its subpoenas from the House committee. The court is basically saying the House has not alleged a basis for the Florida Court to have jurisdiction over the matter. In a sense, they are correct. The matter really belongs in federal court.

Okay, thanks Nick and everyone. Do you have a suggestion for an amended title so that I can ask the Admin Moderator to change the title to prevent undue upset?

Whatever it is, it appears to be stale as it were. I guess there were some more dangling participles as silly as the subpoena thingie. The foreplay is over. We are now down to brass tacks.

Possible .. sure looks like a battle between the courts and the legislative branch

And the Fl courts are sticking their thumb in the legislative branch's eye

I'm not sure now who the controlling authority is now.

The last thing we need is a turf war.

It should never have come to this.
