The Schindlers have good cause to be concerned about the new court-appointed guardian ad litem, Dr. Jay Wolfson, director of the Florida Health Information Center at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Wolfson is also a lawyer.
The University of South Florida is intimately connected to Hospice and Hospice of the Florida Suncoast (the corporate owner of the hospice where Terri was being dehydrated and starved, and where she is once again interned).
The University of South Florida website gives information on continuing professional education to be held November 6th by the University of South Florida's Center for Hospice, Palliative Care and End-of-Life Studies.
The University of South Florida, Dr. Jay Wolfson's employer, has a partnership with, among other hospice organizations, the Hospice of the Florida Suncoast.
Thanks to Eleanor for the research on Wolfson.

Terri Schiavo's parents file motion against appointed guardian
Wolfson is a professor of law and medicine at Stetson University.
Bob and Mary Schindler, the parents of Terri Schiavo, are worried about the court-appointed guardian assigned to their daughter’s case.
The Schindlers have filed a suggestion of bias against Dr. Jay Wolfson, a professor of health and law at Stetson University. Wolfson also works for the College of Public Health at Florida State University and the College of Medicine at the University of South Florida.
Last week the Florida Legislature teamed up with Governor Jeb Bush on ‘Terri’s Law.’ The guidelines of the law call for the Schindlers and Terri’s husband and guardian Michael Schiavo five days to come up with an independent guardian in the case.
If they can’t a Pinellas County Court judge will appoint Wolfson.
Meanwhile, Michael Schiavo’s attorney, George Felos, says he will file a brief on Monday, challenging the constitutionality of ‘Terri’s Law.’ The legislation was passed last week and allowed Governor Bush to step in and order Terri’s feeding tube reinserted. [end article]
