Terri Schiavo's case offers a number of legal questions for the Supreme Court to consider if, as expected, it reaches the justices. Among them is whether she actually requested that artificial means not be used to keep her alive and whether state or federal court should be the venue to determine her fate. The high court has rejected four emergency requests from Schiavo's parents to keep her on a feeding tube after Florida state courts declined to do so.
