Federal Judge Denies Relief Again
Federal Judge James Whittemore has rejected the Schindler's latest lawsuit to reinsert Terri Schiavo's feeding tube:
In his 11-page ruling, Whittemore wrote that the Schindlers couldn't establish "a substantial likelihood of success on the merits" of their case. He also noted "the difficulties and heartbreak the parties have endured throughout this lengthy process" and praised the lawyers' civility, saying it was "a credit to their professionalism ... and Terri."
It looks like Jeb Bush is going to come out of this as the hero of the radical right:
Gov. Jeb Bush has ordered his legal team to scour state laws for a way to reconnect Schiavo's feeding tube. There were calls from a supporter of the parents for him to take further action.
Update: The New York Times has more on Jeb Bush's increased political capital resulting from the Schiavo case.
