Schiavo v. The Honorable George W. Greer, et al., United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida Tampa Division, Judge James S. Moody, March 18, 2005 [ruling denying petition for temporary injunction and petition for a writ of habeas corpus]. Excerpt:
The fact that Petitioners have exhausted their state court appellate options without success does not provide this Court with jurisdiction over this matter. Therefore, the Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus is denied...

Having reviewed the Petition, the Court finds that there is not a substantial likelihood that Petitioners will prevail on their federal constitutional claims. Accordingly, Petitioners' Emergency Petition for Temporary Injunction is denied.
