The husband of a brain-damaged Florida woman is suing in the state Supreme Court for the right to remove her from life support.

Michael Schiavo is suing Gov. Jeb Bush over "Terri's Law," which Bush pushed through after Terri Schiavo was removed from a feeding tube.

Schiavo claims in his suit filed today with the court that Bush had stripped his wife of "her most intimate personal rights" by forcing her to be kept alive.

Arguments in the case are scheduled for Aug. 31.

Terri Schiavo has depended on the feeding tube to keep her alive for more than a decade after collapsing from a chemical imbalance.
