Terri Schiavo Update - DCF jumps in
CLEARWATER -- A state circuit judge Wednesday extended until 5 p.m. Friday the stay keeping Terri Schiavo's feeding tube intact, saying he needed time to consider more arguments from her parents from her parents that she should undergo new medical tests and that her husband should be dismissed as her guardian.
Meanwhile the Florida Department of Children & Families moved to intervene in the legal battle over the life of the brain-damaged woman.
Details of the agency's involvement in the case were not immediately available; Circuit Judge George Greer denied a DCF attorney an opportunity to speak at the afternoon hearing.
George Felos, who represents Terri Schiavo's husband Michael, criticized the DCF move, saying it "reeks of the intervention of politics into the case and is an affront to the court."
Gibbs countered that there are serious allegations of abuse in the case.
The DCF involvement came hours after Gov. Jeb Bush told reporters he was seeking a means to intervene in the case.
