Florida State Supreme Court denies Schindlers' appeal (via Fox News TV).

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday refused to overturn a judge's order blocking the state from taking temporary custody of Terri Schiavo, another setback in her parents' battle to keep their brain-damaged daughter alive.

Gov. Jeb Bush wants the state Department of Children & Families to take custody of Schiavo, presumably to reinsert her feeding tube, and to investigate allegations that she has been abused and prove that she's not in a persistent vegetative state.

Pinellas Circuit Judge George Greer earlier in the day denied Bush's request and has blocked the state from taking emergency action to intervene in the case while it appeals his decision.

[Thanks to Austin in comments!]

Still waiting for decision by Judge Whittemore (11th Circuit). (I'm not holding my breath.)
