Federal Court to Rule on Terri Schiavo

A federal court in Tampa will issue a ruling on an injunction filed by Terri Schiavo's parents, calling for reinserting their brain-damaged daughter's feeding tube.

Early Monday, President Bush signed into law a bill that allows federal court involvement in the case, which pits Schiavo's parents against her husband. Judge James Whittemore heard arguments from both sides of the issue Monday.

NPR's Robert Siegel talks with NPR's Ari Shapiro.
