Schiavo Watch: Day 4,323

Jeannie Shawl at Jurist's "Paper Chase" continues that law-news blog's excellent reporting on developments in the Terri Schiavo case with Wednesday's report that the Second District Court of Appeal -

(i) denied her parents' motion to stay the removal of Terri's feeding tube, now scheduled to occur on Friday;

(ii) denied the parents' motion for a new trial;

(iii) granted the motion for expedited consideration of the Florida Department of Children and Family Services' appeal of the trial judge's denial of the department's request to intervene in the case; and

(iv) denied the Florida agency's request for a stay of Friday's removal of the feeding tube.

The court's opinion is here. [tm]
