Schiavo: Court Rescinds Hope

After agreeing to consider an emergency bid by Bob and Mary Schindler for a new hearing in their case late Tuesday night, 15 hours later the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said “just kidding.”

“Any further action by our court or the district court would be improper,” wrote Judge Stanley F. Birch Jr., a GHW Bush appointee. “While the members of her family and the members of Congress have acted in a way that is both fervent and sincere, the time has come for dispassionate discharge of duty.”

He also took a slap at the current executive and legislative branches of government. “In resolving the Schiavo controversy, it is my judgment that, despite sincere and altruistic motivation, the legislative and executive branches of our government have acted in a manner demonstrably at odds with our Founding Fathers’ blueprint for the governance of a free people — our Constitution.”
