Schiavo's Previous Guardian
Dr. Jay Wolfson is a professor of public health and law at the University of South Florida; in 2003, a Florida court appointed him to be Terri Schiavo's guardian ad litem for a month, seeking data on mental abilities disputed by Schiavo's husband and parents.
Wolfson recommended that both parties in the case abide by the results of tests -- including a swallowing test -- which would gauge Schiavo's cognitive ability. In the end, he couldn't get them to agree.
NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Wolfson.
