Latest Update on Terri Schiavo situation: Media reports are wrong

Topics: News

Flash:

At this moment, there is no stay. All of media are reporting that there is.

The problem is that yesterday, the court's media relations department issued a release and included all three documents that were filed. Amongst them was a *proposed* order, penned by the Schindlers' attorney. This was, however, not signed by Judge Greer. Therein lies the confusion.

Even AP has reported that there is a stay in effect until hearing tomorrow. Unfortunately, that is not true.

We will know sometime around 1.00pm ET today whether or not Judge Greer will sign that proposed order. If he does not, it is possible that Terri's food and water will be withdrawn as early as this afternoon.

It seems that even the Schindler's attorney is saying that such a stay was granted. This is from a recent CNSNews.com story:McCullough warned that, if Schiavo chooses to remove Terri's feeding tube, Schindler family attorney David Gibbs will ask the court to step in.

"David Gibbs has said, very clearly, that, if Felos and his client, Michael Schiavo, move forward and remove the tube," McCullough said, "he believes that would place them in contempt of court and will ask the court to find them in contempt."

So does this mean there was actually a stay ordered?
