The class-action lawsuit against Galilee Memorial Gardens, accused of mishandling bodies and failing in its obligations to the families of the grieving, began today in Memphis, The Commercial Appeal reports. More than 1,200 plaintiffs joined together in the suit, which accuses funeral directors of regularly leaving early and failing to complete the job they were hired to do.
