DCF jumps in Terri Case!

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: Blogs for Terri)
[T]he Florida Department of Children & Families moved to intervene in the legal battle over the life of the brain-damaged woman.

Details of the agency's involvement in the case were not immediately available; Circuit Judge George Greer denied a DCF attorney an opportunity to speak at the afternoon hearing.

It looks like the government is finally taking noticed. I also see that CNN is correctly reporting the story as well (which is a good thing seeing as most of the Media labeled Terri as "brain dead"). The intervention of DCF (Department of Children & Families) in Florida is a good thing because they may have legal precedent to remove Michael as caretaker and place that responsibility in the hands of themselves or Terri's parents.

Here is also another measure filed by Mr. Watts which may buy time for Terri and give her grace beyond the 5 p.m. starvation order:
Although the family’s attorneys and the Florida Governor have made some good legal arguments only Mr. Watts has petitioned the court concerning Theresa’s illegal detention at the Hospice of the Florida Suncoast, Inc. based on the fact that she is not terminally ill and it is illegal according to state and federal laws for her to be placed into and detained in hospice. Mr. Watts has used habeas corpus as the vehicle to bring this argument. As it stands Theresa has been illegally detained at Hospice Woodside for close to 5 years.

Illegally detained? I have a feeling that this won't be the last court session for Terri. Selah!
