49 minutes ago

In a medical-malpractice lawsuit stemming from the death of a woman who hanged herself, the Florida Supreme Court on Wednesday weighed whether her doctor could be found negligent in the suicide.

The case, brought by the husband of Sarasota County woman Jacqueline Granicz after her 2008 death, raises issues about physician Joseph Chirillo's "duty" of care.

Officials say 8-year-old Romello Jackson remains in critical condition at Tampa General Hospital. His grandmother Sheryl James and 8-year-old Reshard Ashley and Emjay Jackson all died in the fire.

Mr. Bush does not seem to be radiating much joy these days. He said last year that he would run for president only if he could do so with a sunny spirit, but Mr. Trump, the surprise leader in the polls, has turned this summer into a miserable one for Mr. Bush, gleefully ignoring the traditional rules of political engagement.

Central Florida congressman Alan Grayson has gained national notoriety for his comments on the House floor, claiming that the only healthcare plan being offered by Republicans is to "hurry up and die."

Grayson, D-Orlando, doesn’t regret that comment or other remarks that have gotten him in trouble with the media and Democratic Party leaders.
