Breaking News: NEW MEDICAL TESTS SOUGHT FOR TERRI SCHIAVOTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
The life of Terri Schindler-Schiavo will hinge on the outcome of two dramatic hearings scheduled to unfold Monday, Feb. 21 in the Florida courtroom of Sixth Circuit Court Judge George W. Greer.
David Gibbs III of Seminole, Fl., attorney for Mary and Robert Schindler Sr., parents of the brain damaged woman, said Thursday that he will file a new motion Monday asking Greer to allow new medical tests for Terri based on the findings of a new brain imaging study published in the journal Neurology.
Gibbs said a hearing is also scheduled for Monday at 2:30 p.m. on the Schindlers' motion to extend the stay of Greer's 2000 court ordered judicial homicide which could remove Terri's assisted feeding tube as early as Tuesday.
James Bernat, professor of neurology at Dartmouth College, said the study findings are relevant to the Schiavo case and that a brain image test could determine if she is in a persistent vegetative state as Greer has labeled her.
"Terri deserves to get these tests", her father said. "Terri is alert, she's aware. I think the bottom line is that Terri deserves to get these tests. It would be unconscionable for Judge Greer or any other judge to order her death without these tests".
