Me too..if Terri dies I will never set foot on Florida soil again.
It's ok, I'm not upset .. I was just in a state of confusion
Which is not unusual for me .. *L*
How can anyone snub Congressional subpoena power. Isn't it absolute?
By denying that interlocutory appeal, the matter of intervention is stuck in the Florida Appellate Court and there is no other avenue, at least in the Florida state courts, to get reinsertion of the tube, as the matter awaits appellate review.
In the meantime, the subpoenas have been served and could still be enforced on March 25th. The problem with that is that the tube will have been out one week. This means that the decision of the federal judge will determine whether there is any reinsertion between now and the 25th.
So ARE Greer, Schiavo, and hospice in Contempt of Congress or not?
Seems to me THAT was one possible remedy to today's standoff, a perfect excuse to send in the marshalls since all of them
(Greer/Schiavo/hospice) conspired to ignore the Congressonal subpoenas, and yank the tube.
Based on Midwestguy's analysis of the legal situation, no contempt situation exists until the effective date of the subpoenas passes, March 25th. The attempt by Congress to intervene in the guardianship matter was an attempt to have the feeding tube reinserted pending the effective date of those subpoenas.
I don't think so. This is from the Florida Supreme Court, not the federal judge.

Part of the subpoena conditions are that the subpoenaed witness(es) be protected from injury or harm. The longer Terri goes without a feeding tube, she is being harmed which is obviously a source of potential contempt.
Can't we get Al Sharpton to file suit in the World Court at the Hague?
Pray for Terri Schiavo.
Ops4 God BLess America!
"It means that the judge is directly defying an act of Congress which explicitly extended jurisdiction."
"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."
Kinda like getting ones panties in a wad over nothing?
I made an error, see the followup comments. I thought it was a different court.
Oh, OK! LOL
