"Section 2031 provides for the production and inspection of 'objects or tangible things'. We think it unreasonable to interpret this language as encompassing human remains."


No, you can't force someone's estate to produce the body for exhumation in order to perform an autopsy to prove whether the dude did, or did not, have alzheimer's.

What non-religious reasons by ammoniacal (4.00 / 3) #1 Wed Aug 25, 2010 at 11:00:38 PM EST
are there to object to any useful manipulation of human remains? The people who inflict their fairy tales on others can fuck right off.

should the heirs have control over the body and the right to deny random requests (eg, not from the coroner for public health reasons or the police for criminal evidentiary reasons)?

I'm for it for civil discovery, as well as for by ammoniacal (4.00 / 1) #3 Thu Aug 26, 2010 at 02:14:12 AM EST

My mother was created within 5 days. by ammoniacal (2.00 / 0) #6 Thu Aug 26, 2010 at 07:23:57 PM EST
That time span would allow for organ donation and dodging nosy heirs. Seems immediate enough for this exercise.

the attorneys for the man's ex-wife by aphrael (2.00 / 0) #11 Fri Aug 27, 2010 at 05:16:12 PM EST
she wanted to challenge his new will on the grounds that he made it while so impaired by alzheimer's that he was incapable of judgment.
