Court Rules in Favor of UC-Irvine’s Willed Body Program
On Monday, a widow lost her 10-year fight to hold UC-Irvine accountable for losing track of her husband's body, which was donated for research. The California Supreme Court unanimously ruled that family members have little say in what happens to a loved one's body if the donor signed an agreement with the receiving institution and the institution complied with it. The ruling could affect the outcome of several pending lawsuits against UCLA's body donation program.
