Brain Damaged Woman

Comatose Florida Woman

Florida Governor Jeb Bush and the parents of Terri Schiavo have won court rulings in their favor, as part of their quest to keep the brain-damaged woman alive.

A Florida appeals court ruled that a lower court judge did not follow judicial rules when he barred the parents from intervening in the constitutional challenge to a law aimed at keeping the woman alive.

That law gave Governor Bush the authority to have the woman's feeding tube reinserted after her husband had it removed in October.

Michael Schiavo maintains his wife would not have wanted to be kept alive artificially.

The appeals court also ordered a judge to hold further proceedings on the issue, and said the governor's attorneys would be able to question witnesses.
