Check this page out – I’ve found it very helpful in understanding the details of what has happened with Terry Schiavo.
Abstract Appeal — by Matt Conigliaro: “As a Florida law blogger, I have created this page to help people understand the legal circumstances surrounding the Terri Schiavo saga. In my view, there continues to be a need for an objective look at the matter. There is an unbelievable amount of misinformation being circulated.
To be clear at the outset, I have no interest in taking any ‘side’ in this dispute. Remarkably, I’ve been accused of being biased in favor of each side at one point or another. I’m not. I have never met, spoken with, or even seen anyone in the Schiavo or Schindler families. I use first names on this web log simply for convenience, and my interest is simply as someone who enjoys Florida law and wishes to add some clarity to the events here. Pick a given month’s archives (linked on the right) since I started this web log and you’ll see what I mean.
Finally, and without unnecessary elaboration, I’ll point out that I sympathize with everyone involved. The circumstances here are tragic.
