Florida Supreme Court denied rehearing in Schiavo case
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On October 21, 2004, the Supreme Court of Florida denied a request by Florida Governor Jeb Bush that it reconsider its decision striking down the law blocking Terri Schiavo's husband from removing her feeding tube. The court had ruled unanimously to strike down the law, which the state legislature had passed after lower courts had ruled in favor of Schiavo's husband, saying state lawmakers had overstepped their constitutional authority.
