Judge weighing Schiavo's fate known for by-the-book ways

Congress broke with tradition by meeting on Palm Sunday to pass a bill that could get Terri Schiavo back on a feeding tube. The president of the United States interrupted his vacation and a good nights sleep to sign the bill into law. But the man with the real power to make the decision, U.S. District Judge James Whittemore, adjourned his court hearing on Schiavos fate without making any decision. People who know him arent surprised that he would handle this extraordinary case in a completely ordinary way.
