Florida judge who presided over the Terri Schiavo case until her death, has a new assignment. He no longer judges Florida Guardianship cases. He judges divorce cases.
Judge Greer is nationally famous and has 20 honors displayed in his chambers. The largest is the 2005 President’s Award of Merit from the Florida Bar, “for your unswerving commitment to the rule of law, the independence of the judiciary and the fundamentals of American democracy.”
With the recent cases like Britney Spears competency hearing, many have found the need for a Durable Power of Attorney and the Schiavo case is a good reason people need a Florida Living Will. After all if Schiavo had a Florida Living Will she and Judge Greer would not have had the national spotlight. The fight was only because Schiavo did not have a Florida Living Will.
