The brother of Terri Schiavo is seeking to intervene in a case involving another patient who the state may decide is too far gone to warrant even basic care such as food and water.
An attorney for Bobby Schindler has filed with the Supreme Court of the State of New York, asking the court to allow him to serve as Guardian for Mr. Gary Harvey.
In 2006, Harvey, a Chemung County resident, was involved in a home accident, which left him with a profound brain injury. His spouse, Sara Harvey, sought guardianship only to be denied by the Chemung County Supreme Court who ultimately appointed the Chemung County Department of Social Services as Harvey’s guardian.
Since that time, Mrs. Harvey has been in a prolonged court battle with Chemung County officials and the New York State Court System.
