Crematorium Faces Class Action Negligence Lawsuit

Several families of the deceased are bringing a class action lawsuit against a crematorium they believe has mishandled, mislabeled, and mistreated the remains of their loved ones. A New Hampshire judge is presiding over the class action lawsuit against the crematorium, which includes allegations of negligence, consumer protection violations, and misrepresentation. This case is the latest in a series of scandals to arise regarding increasing illegal conduct within the human tissue industry, which is causing a great deal of concern amongst funeral homes. Lawyer Chris Grant, who is representing the 25 plaintiffs, says, "One client in particular, Michael Ellis, has had his wife's remains analyzed and found they include orthopedic hardware and jewelry that did not belong to her."
