    The state of Texas did not order it. They misapplied the law. The law did not apply to dead people. I think unless they attempted formally to clarify the law when conflict arose in November, the hospital should foot the bill.
    I didn't realize that. If it was someone from the hospital that made the decision, then the hospital should pay. Basically whoever made the decision should be financially liable.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    The husband was asked about the bills and he stated he is receiving bills and was told by other media outlets that their billing procedures would be unchanged.

    The husband was clear he did not want his wife to be kept on machines and the courts indicated clearly that the law did not apply to Marlise because she was dead as of November 28th.

    Who should foot the bill for the period of time where she met the criteria for brain death?
    The ones who refused to let the woman die in accordance with her families wishes. The hospital seems to be the most likely candidate for footing the entire bill.

    I agree, but the reality is that she did die November 28th 2013. They just refused to take her off the machines.

    That is right, and because of that the hospital will have to pay for the costs the family had to make to allow her to die (the lawsuit), the mental anguish they had to go through and the medical bills incurred because of the refusal to let her die.
