EMERGENCY PLEA TO FEED TERRI: DENIED!

The news broke early at about 6:26 am (EST) this morning. Judge Whittemore decided to NOT order the re-insertion of the tube used for Terri to receive nutrition and hydration. It is expected Judge Whittemore will make an official ruling at 9:00 am.

This will kick the case into the arena of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. This court in Atlanta has ALREADY received a brief on this case from attorney Gibbs (according to sources).

I expect the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta to be of NO HELP, but even if it is- this would only be a TEMPORARY victory for Terri.


THE LONG TERM


ANSWER TO


SAVE TERRI


IS THE FLORIDA SENATE!


TIME TO HIT THE PHONES


AND EMAILS


LIKE NEVER BEFORE!


ALL WE NEED IS 3 OF THE 9!



CONCENTRATE ON THESE 9!!!! (Plus KING! He is the one leading this BUNCH!)

  • Judge Whittemore has just ignored the words of a law passed by the Congress of the United States. Further, by lollygagging for 30 hours, he has taken a giant step towards killing the subject of that law. The law required a de novo hearing. He instead treated it as an appellate review, took no witnesses, and saw no evidence-- merely reviewed arguments. The 11th Circuit will overturn him. If they do not do so immediately, Terri will be dead. In order to not overturn him, they will have to find the law unconstitutional-- which I guess they could do.

    I am glad to hear that you are hopeful about the Atlanta court being of some help.

    THe Florida Senate is KEY on this too.

    This would protect a LOT of people if passed....

  • Via local news: The judge decided against re-inserting the feeding tube while the court hashes out what Terri's wishes would have been.

  • Carla Sauer Iyer, former nurse for Terri, was just on FOX News and told how diabolical Michael was, that he tried to kill Terri and how Terri talked, was able to eat pudding, jello other foods, sat at the nurses station and interacted with staff and visitors. Judge Whittemore and the FL legislature have somehow got to hear what Iyer has to say and take action to save Terri. All of this has been rumored, now it has been put out in the open. Someone has got to do something NOW.

  • Whittemore is still the presiding judge over the full federal case, right? The only thing being appealed to the 11th Circuit Court is the denial of TRO?
