Another asshole lawyer in a black robe has essentially thumbed his nose at the Legislative branch of congress and ignored their subpoenas of Terry Schiavo. Being a witness before congress she should have special protections from being killed by her husband. According to laws passed by the duly elected legislature that is.
The subpoenas, copies of which were obtained by FOX News, were issued to Schiavo herself, her husband, the hospice administrator and two attending physicians.
In addition to their testimony, the subpoenas required that Schiavo's feeding tube remain in place, stating: "No things including those things reflecting data, information, or records called for by this request shall be destroyed, modified, transferred, disconnected, discontinued, or otherwise made inaccessible to the Committee."
Further, they directed: "This request is continuing in nature and applies to any newly deployed things required for the continued hydration and nutrition of Theresa Schiavo."
Apparently a judge in Florida feels he is above those laws especially since he is a non elected oligarch.
He is essentialy ignoring the congressional subpeonas. If someone acted that defiantly in his court room you know he woud throw a typical judge temper tantrum of finding YOU in contempt. As if a non elected black robed lawyer (and you know how much lawyers are regarded) deserves any iota of respect from anyone who cherishes liberty, rule of law, and seperation of powers.
"I have had no cogent reason why the (congressional) committee should intervene," Greer told attorneys in a conference call, adding that last-minute action by Congress does not invalidate years of court rulings
Just remember. A judge is nothing more than a lawyer in costume.
