    A federal court in Tennessee has dealt a serious setback to those attacking photo voter identification laws around the country – including Eric Holder’s Justice Department in North Carolina. United States District Court Judge Ronnie Greer has thrown out a lawsuit brought by the Green Party challenging the Volunteer State’s photo voter ID law. While the decision was bad for the Green Party in Tennessee, the opinion may be even worse for voter ID opponents nationwide such as the NAACP, the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund and Eric Holder . Greer’s opinion undermines most all of the arguments being pushed...

    More than two years after enraging right-wing groups by ordering Terry Schiavo's feeding tube removed, George Greer still peers over his shoulder nervously at times. In fact, the Florida judge told a rapt audience Friday at the American Bar Association's annual meeting, he even used an alias when he registered at his San Francisco hotel on this trip. Two years ago, he said, someone in the Bay Area threatened to kill him over his decision to end life support for the brain-damaged Schiavo. And even though that person was prosecuted and jailed, Greer said, he's taking no chances. "It is...

    Among the celebrities journeying to Connecticut to support Ned Lamont's campaign to unseat Sen. Joseph Lieberman (now running as an independent, having lost the Democratic primary to Lamont) is Michael Schiavo, known around the world as the husband who finally succeeded in having the feeding tube removed from his late wife, Terri Schiavo. Schiavo pointedly reminded Connecticut voters that Sen. Lieberman has supported the president and Congressional Republicans in passing emergency legislation involving federal courts in an attempt to save Terri Schiavo's life while he, Michael Schiavo, was respecting her wishes — which she could no longer communicate — to...

    PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (AP) - Pinellas Circuit Judge George Greer has been called a murderer and equated with the Roman governor who condemned Jesus to death. He has been vilified in Internet chat rooms and has received death threats by e-mail. Greer is the judge who granted Terri Schiavo's husband permission to remove her feeding tube in one of the longest and most contentious right-to-life battles. His decision was second-guessed and essentially overridden by the Florida Legislature and Gov. Jeb Bush last week. Following judicial code of conduct, Greer has been silent about the public debate over the Schiavo case...

    And Greer, vilified by many religious protesters, is a church regular. He also is a conservative Republican in a state whose conservative Republican governor tried to overturn one of Greer's orders. "George is the religious right," said lawyer David Kurland, a longtime friend. Friends say Greer's intellect is perfectly formed to withstand the very tempest he now faces. Always calm, not prone to mood swings or flares of temper, unerringly polite, he is not easily ruffled, they say. But the criticisms sting, friends say. His relationship with his church, for example, has changed. "He's been through a lot of storms...

    A self verifying man sits astride the world, surveys all he can see, and pronounces it good. This is a terrifying thing because the man doing it is none other than Judge George Greer of Florida and the thing he was pronouncing good was the excruciatingly legal murder of one Terri Schindler, formerly Terri Schiavo. We have to grasp this. A tin-pot, swamp water embarrassment from the brackish backwater of former jurisprudence pronounced to both houses of the Congress of the United States of America that their subpoenas weren't worth a damned thing and that he, the new godhead, had...

    While not specifically calling it "revenge," Michael Schiavo has fired a shot over the bow at the "Bible-thumping politicians" whom he claims used his wife, Terri Schiavo, as a political football last spring. Schiavo has announced the formation of a political action committee, called Terri PAC, in hopes of raising funds to defeat the politicians who tried to intervene in the seven-year court battle over the life of the 41-year-old brain-injured woman.

    The end of the June 15 autopsy report on Terri Schiavo states that it is the policy of the medical examiner's officer "that no case is ever closed and that all determinations are to be reconsidered upon receipt of credible, new information." Whatever new information, if any, comes to light, the facts of who she was and how she died will inevitably change the way many of us confront our own deaths. Pat Anderson, for a long time the attorney for Terri Schiavo's parents, said the day Terri died of dehydration — as ordered by the courts and her husband...
  • Michael Schiavo's Lawyer: An Oddball - (author calls Felos "creepy;" "poisonous evil!")

    In a stunning profile of George Felos -- the attorney who helped Michael Schiavo put his wife Terri to death -- an author and famed theologian shows the weird side of the crusading right-to-die lawyer. This is certainly a story the mainstream media ignored. Writing in Crisis magazine, Benjamin Wiker, co-author of "Architects of the Culture of Death" and a senior fellow at the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, uses Felos' own words to expose his oddball views. Wiker is no friend of Felos' views. He writes of Terri's Shiavo's death: "Cold blooded murder," sanctioned by the state of...

    Honorable Mr. Bense: I know that you keep a busy schedule and with utmost respect of your time, I would like to ask for your intervention on an issue that is not only pressing, but also critical for the welfare of all Americans. As we know, laws applied in one case or state, whether right or not, ultimately, create a legalistic legacy that affect the rest of the country. Therefore, our country stands in the middle of a crisis of unbridled proportion. For the first time in our history, an entire, failed judicial system, is responsible for the murder of...

    ( - The Florida judge who ordered Terri Schiavo's feeding tube removed three times before she eventually died was being honored Thursday night by the West Pasco Bar Association in New Port Richey for his "professionalism and integrity," according to a member of the group. Pinellas-Pasco, County Circuit Court Judge George Greer was at the center of the Schiavo controversy up until the moment of the 41-year-old Florida woman's court-ordered death. He angered disability rights advocates with the final ruling to remove Terri's feeding tube, because, unlike previous orders, that one also prohibited anyone from offering Terri nutrition or hydration...

    NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. -- Protesters greeted the circuit judge who presided over the Terri Schiavo case as he arrived at a bar association ceremony where he was honored with a standing ovation. Judge George Greer on Thursday night told members of the West Pasco Bar Association that he will treasure the group's Special Justice Award recognizing his 13 years on the bench. Outside, about 15 people carried signs criticizing Greer for issuing the court order to withdraw a feeding tube from the 41-year-old brain-damaged woman. Schiavo died 13 days later, ending a bitter seven-year legal fight between her husband...

    The Florida judge who presided over the politically and emotionally charged Terri Schiavo case received a special award from a local legal association on Thursday, prompting more controversy. Judge George Greer received the West Pasco Bar Association's Special Justice Award for his integrity and professionalism, according to the attorney in charge of the event, Alan Miller. He said the award was intended to honor Greer for his entire career, not just the Schiavo case. "I liken this to a lifetime achievement award for an actor," Miller said. "He's an excellent judge. He followed the law." Greer ordered Schiavo's feeding tube...

As part of Law Week, which kicks off today, the association will award Greer, 63, its Special Justice Award. ``He's getting this award for all of his contributions on the bench, not...

    The Terri Schiavo case so outraged House Republican leader Tom DeLay that he has all but declared war on the judiciary. Heaven knows judicial arrogance needs discussion, but a politician under siege for alleged ethics violations who is upset over a single outcome that two-thirds of the country agrees with is not the person to get discussion going. After federal courts refused to act in the Schiavo case despite the new jurisdiction that Delay helped create, DeLay said the courts had ``run amok'' in abortion and school prayer cases. Congress, he said, ``must make sure the judges administer their responsibilities.''...
