Schiavo Judge Greer Panelist On Media Access To Courtroom

North Country Gazette

Gag orders. . . . Sealed documents. . . . No cameras allowed in the court. . . . Hiding of information from the public's eyes. . . . How appropriate that Florida's Sixth Circuit Court Judge George W. Greer was right in the middle of attorneys for alleged pedophiles and murderers this week when he appeared as a panelist at a two-day workshop in Reno, Nevada hosted by the National Center for Courts and Media whose topic was the judiciary's blackout of public information in high profile cases. . . . .  Greer is the judicial tyrant who controlled the courtroom proceedings in Pinellas County for over seven years in the contentious and controversial Terri Schindler-Schiavo case. Her estranged husband and guardian, Michael Schiavo had petitioned Greer in 1998 for an order to kill his wife, claiming that she had no chance for recovery and that she would not want to live.


                   


Schiavo Judge Accepted Excessive Campaign Contributions

The Florida Elections Commission has found that there is probable cause to charge candidate Greer with willfully accepting a campaign contribution in excess of the legal limit as part of the funding of his 2004 campaign. . . .    No, that’s not Pinellas County probate court judge George W. Greer----yet. . . .    It’s Osceloa County school board member Tom Greer who could be fined up to $1,000.  The elections commission has investigated a complaint filed against Greer for contributions he received from Deatrick Engineering Associates of Orlando in his successful campaign against Martha Anderson.  According to elections records, Greer accepted $500 on May 7, 2004, and $200 on Aug. 7, 2004 from the firm.  A candidate may not accept a contribution in excess of $500 from any one person per election.

'Judicial murder' and Terri Schiavo

By Nat Hentoff
While editorials across the nation agreed in chorus that at last, Terri Schiavo will rest in peace, the autopsy report declined such certainty:"It is the policy of this office that no case is ever closed and that all determinations are to be reconsidered upon receipt of credible, new information." Even if no new information surfaces, how Terri Schiavo was put to death is causing many Americans to confront their own death. . . . Pat Anderson, for a long time the attorney for Terri Schiavo's parents, said the day Terri died of dehydration as ordered by the courts and her husband: "Euthanasia in America now has a name and a face." Dr. Jon Thogmartin's autopsy report made clear that Terri Schiavo was not dying, let alone terminal. As Dr. Carl D'Angio wrote in a June 21 letter in the New York Times: "Her family loved what was left of her and asked only to be permitted to care for her at their own expense. My question is, who or what was better served by her passive execution by water deprivation than by the first alternative?"

TERRI'S AUTOPSY RESULTS ARE IN

--The Smoking Gun


Terri Schiavo's Family's Attorney Disputes Autopsy Report

by Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com Editor
An attorney for Terri Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, is disputing the findings of an autopsy report released yesterday claiming Terri had significant brain damage, was essentially blind, and was likely not physically abused before her collapse. . . . The Schindlers say their daughter tried to speak with them and always noticed when they entered her hospice room. They also point to videos taken with Terri interacting with doctors and following a balloon over her head with her eyes. . . . Schindler family attorney David Gibbs indicated the Schindlers want to have medical experts further analyze the autopsy report and they may take some sort of legal action afterwards. . . . "Future legal action, we are at this point just examining every option and no decision has been made," Gibbs told the Associated Press. "I've encouraged the family to just let time settle a little bit."


Autopsy suggests Schiavo cognizant
Analyst: 'It's possible Terri was aware of everything being done to her'

© 2005 WorldNetDaily.com

Challenging the assumptions of many analysts and news reports, an attorney who specializes in medical ethics cases points out the autopsy report of Terri Schiavo indicates the brain-injured woman might have been cognizant of her surroundings as her family insisted. . . . Jerri Lynn Ward of Austin, Texas, notes the report released Wednesday in the high-profile case states: "The frontal temporal and temporal poles and insular-cortex demonstrated relative preservation." . . . "What this tells us is that her cortex retained function and that her brain was more normal in the area that controls higher-level thinking," said Ward, who has weighed in on the case in her weblog and in an interview with "Joseph Farah's WorldNetDaily RadioActive" show. . . . Cause of brain injury not revealed by autopsy


Bush wants more information on Schiavo's collapse;
call to 911

Gov. Jeb Bush said Thursday he might ask a state attorney to investigate allegations that Terri Schiavo's husband waited more than an hour to call 911 after her 1990 collapse. . . . Terri Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, have previously said their son-in-law waited more than an hour to make the call. An autopsy report released Wednesday didn't address the allegation. . . . "There's some doubt about when she did collapse and how long it took ... for the 911 call to be made," Bush said. "Which I think is worthy of some investigation. I don't know what form it would take." . . . Bush said he might ask Bernie McCabe, state attorney for Pinellas-Pasco, to look into the issue, but that would have to wait until McCabe returned from vacation. . . . Bush said the medical examiner shouldn't determine if there was a gap. . . . "This is really out of his realm," Bush added. "It's not a medical examiner's job to determine why there would be a gap if there was one."


Fuhrman: Schiavo's Collapse Still a Mystery

While Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner Jon Thogmartin suggested yesterday that his autopsy of Terri Schiavo had cleared up most of the questions raised by critics of the court-ordered decision to starve her to death, renowned homicide detective Mark Fuhrman insists that key aspects of the case remain in doubt. . . . Fuhrman, whose book on the Schiavo case, "Silent Witness," is due out on June 28, told ABC Radio host Sean Hannity yesterday that the most glaring mystery about the case remains unsolved: What was the cause of Schiavo's initial collapse on the night of Feb. 25, 1990?

There’s coincidences AND THEN THERE’S UNNATURAL COINCIDENCES

Judge Greer Resuscitates Michael Schiavo

By The Empire Journal

Florida’s Sixth Judicial Circuit Court judge George W. Greer kills people with the stroke of a pen. . . . He killed Terri Schindler-Schiavo by judicial order, resulting in the disabled woman’s death on March 31 by starvation and dehydration. . . . And then with blind vision, he signed an order falsely stating that Terri’s estranged husband and guardian Michael Schiavo had predeceased Terri, dying on March 30, 2005. . . . At least that’s what the Letters of Administration said that was filed April 7 in the office of Ken Burke, clerk of the circuit court of Pinellas County containing Greer’s signature. . . . But then there’s the matter of Greer’s judicial counterpart in the Sixth Judicial Cirucit, John C. Lenderman.  The Empire Journal has learned that Lenderman  represented Prudential Insurance Company in the Schiavo matter and apparently failed to make the disclosure to anyone even though his sister, Martha Lenderman, is a member of the board of directors of the hospice where Terri Schiavo died.

"Schiavo Case Said Little About 'Right to Die,' Much About Judicial Supremacy"

Summary:

While there were many claims made about the Schiavo case, the precise question at issue was whether Terri was being "deprived of life ... without due process of law." And in fact, federal courts have a perfectly logical role in determining whether a state has violated such a clear-cut federal constitutional right.

by:Mr. Peter Sprigg

Ironically, if Terri Schiavo's feeding tube had been reinserted and she had been allowed to live on, it would have done very little damage to the purported "right to die." It would have set no precedent for cases in which a patient has left written instructions, in which a patient's heart is unable to beat or lungs are unable to breathe without the aid of a machine, in which a patient was already suffering a terminal illness, or in which a patient's closest family members are united as to what the patient wanted. What made Terri's case stand out was not how typical it was of "end-of-life" issues, but how utterly unique. . . . While allowing Terri to live would have done little harm to the "right to die," the determination of her husband and the entire judicial system of the United States to kill her set some very dangerous precedents indeed. One is what it says about the role of judges in our system of laws. . . . Liberals who were cynical about legislative intervention in the case gleefully pointed out that the courts that heard various motions in the case could hardly be accused of "judicial activism." This term is often used by conservatives to describe judges who read into the law principles not evident from its language. Indeed, courts in this case might better be accused of "judicial inactivism"--an unwillingness to draw obvious conclusions from newly enacted laws if it might mean questioning the decision of a fellow judge. . . . The common thread, however, is judicial arrogance, judicial supremacy, and judicial tyranny. Defenders of the courts' refusal to intervene tout the constitutional principle of the "separation of powers" between the branches of government. They are less enamored with the concept that the three branches exercise "checks and balances" upon one another, except in a one-way direction (that is, when judges tell legislators to throw out the laws they have passed through the democratic process).


Federal Judge In Schiavo Case Had Major Conflict
Involving Felos

© The Empire Journal

“Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”

The life of Terri Schindler-Schiavo was in the hands of U.S. District Court Judge James Whittemore of Tampa.. . . And he sealed her death warrant. . . . In denying the request March 22 for a temporary restraining order to restore her feeding tube and thus save her life, Whittemore wrote that her parents, Mary and Bob Schindler Sr., didn’t have a substantial likelihood of success on the merits of their arguments. . . .  However, they would have more of a likelihood of success had Whittemore disclosed his overwhelming conflict of interest in the matter that ethically prohibited him from sitting on the case. . . . Whittemore, who had served in the 13thCircuit Court of Hillsborough County from 1990 to 1999 ruled that “the court concludes that Terri Schiavo’s life and liberty interests were adequately protected by extensive process provided in the state courts”.. . . But there had been extensive conflicts of interest and improper rulings in the state courts against Terri Schiavo and her parents.. . . And those perverse conflict of interests extended into federal court.

The Schiavo Case and the Death Penalty

Writing in the National Law Journal, Stephen Bright of the Southern Center for Human Rights and Virginia Sloan of The Constitution Project argue for greater federal court review of state court actions in capital cases by taking at face value the rhetoric employed during the Schiavo case:

Proponents of the law that required federal court review of the Terri Schiavo case said that all possible protections should be available when a human life is at stake. Said Senator Mel Martinez, R-Fla., "We will simply be allowing the federal judge to give one last review, one last look in a case that has so many questions, that has so many anxieties, and that will provide us the kind of assurance before the ultimate fate of this woman is decided to know that we did all we could do and that every last measure of review was given her, just like it would have been given to a death row inmate convicted and sentenced to die."


However, death row inmates are not given "every last measure of [federal] review." In 1996, Congress passed the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act (AEDPA), which severely restricts federal court power to review constitutional claims by inmates sentenced to death by state courts. Federal review, Congress said, would constitute disrespect for state court decisions, even when the claim involves the federal, not state, Constitution.

JUDICIAL ACCOUNTABILITY

Republican judges killed Terri
© 2005 WorldNetDaily.com

There's a good reason congressional Republicans will not hold investigative hearings on the judicial homicide of Terri Schiavo. . . . Republican judges killed her, just as surely as the Democrat judges did. . . . This is the dirty little secret that would be uncovered if Republican lawmakers scratched beneath the surface of how and why the 11th Circuit ignored the will of the people and the U.S. Congress and the president of the United States in refusing a full review of her case as decided by Republican county Judge George Greer. . . . While much attention has been placed on the fact that U.S. District Judge James Whittemore, a Bill Clinton appointee, twice violated the will of Congress in refusing the review, less attention has been focused on the fact that every single Republican appointee on the 11th Circuit supported his decision. . . . The only dissenter was Charles R. Wilson, a Bill Clinton appointee.

"In a certain town there was a judge
 who neither feared God nor cared about men.
 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea,
 'Grant me justice against my adversary.'
 "For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself,
 'Even though I don't fear God or care about men,
 yet because this widow keeps bothering me,
 I will see that she gets justice,
 so that she won't eventually wear me out with her coming!'"
