Shiavo in Court

On Tuesday the highest court in Florida will hear the first set of arguments in the controversial case of a severely brain-damaged woman kept alive by a special state law.

Terri Schiavo's feeding tubes were removed last year, but Gov. Jeb Bush and the legislature rushed a special law allowing them to be reconnected.

A lower court ruled that “Terri's Law” violates Florida's right-of-privacy. Other critics say the statute also violates the separation of powers, but supporters say it adds a layer of protection for the disabled.
