A California judge has set stage for explosive legal battle after ruling that a 13-year-old teenage girl who doctors declared brain dead about three years ago is still alive.

The girl, Jahi McMath, underwent what the medics call tonsillectomy operation in attempts to cure her sleep apnea.

But hours after the delicate operation, the girl reportedly went into cardiac arrest and was declared brain dead by doctors at a Children's Hospital in Oakland.
