Greer nixes DCF intervention; hope for Terri yet...

Yahoo! News - Judge Nixes Schiavo Intervention by Agency
TAMPA, Fla. - A judge ruled Thursday that Florida's social services agency cannot intervene to delay the removal of the feeding tube keeping brain-damaged Terri Schiavo alive.

The Department of Children & Families had asked for a 60-day delay in the removal of the tube, now set for March 18. The agency said it wanted time to investigate allegations of abuse and neglect against the woman's husband, Michael Schiavo.

But Circuit Judge George W. Greer said those allegations and many others had been investigated in the past and found to be groundless. He said the agency was apparently trying to pull an end run around the court by getting involved at this late stage.
Impeach him now. What are Florida's lawmakers waiting for? Does someone have to die for this callous bastard of a scofflaw judge to be impeached?
