Of course they are "technically alive" everyone is alive until pronounced legally dead or deceased.

@ mememe I thought the coroner said she was dead; that's part of the lawsuit the family filed and why the ruling by this judge is so important. By declaring her alive, the family can go after those they choose as well as get their daughter benefits she doesn't qualify for because she's "dead".

She has already been pronounced legally dead. 

 

The family wants that reversed so they can get more money.

What is the basis for the lawsuit? Who is being sued and why?

A death certificate was issued over 2 years ago. She is brain dead. The respirator was going to be discontinued. The family got an ambulance to transport her in an 11th hour 'save'.

 

She was moved to NJ because the laws were more friendly to her than in California. She is being helped by a group that was associated with Terry Schivo(sp).

I usually side with the law, but wow...I question the motives of this judge.

@Marp  Thank you : )  My link brought up "stuff" the mods don't like.

 

Personally, I think this ruling opens a Pandora's Box. Not good.
