another frivolous lawsuit bites the dust

With just a week remaining until Michael Schiavo can once again attempt to implement his wife Terri's wishes to not be kept alive by artificial means in a persistent vegetative state, her nutty controlling parents, their politically motivated allies, and the group of charlatans and hucksters that surround them are doing everything possible to keep the game going.

Today, the judge in the case blew away a politically-motivated attempt by the inept state Department [against] Children and Families (DCF) to slow the wheels of justice.

"A judge ruled Thursday that the state's social services agency cannot delay the removal of the feeding tube keeping brain-damaged Terri Schiavo alive. ... Circuit Judge George W. Greer ruled that the agency's attempt to get involved at this point was inappropriate and "appears to be brought for the purpose of circumventing the court's final judgment ... in violation of the separation of powers doctrine."

The story, posted on local6.com contains the usual slant suggesting that most of the story was written by publicists employed by the Schindlers (Terri's parents) who have shown a willingness to resort to any lengths to deny their daughter her wishes. Calling Terri "brain-damaged" is quite an understatement since where her brain used to be has been replaced by fluid.
