Personal Injury Legal News

In April 2014, a California man received a multi-million dollar jury verdict against a New York City neurologist following a misdiagnosis by the neurologist. After diagnosing the victim with myasthenia gravis, a serious condition, the neurologist prescribed invasive procedures, medication, and treatment that caused the victim to experience pain. The victim also underwent surgeries that did not help his condition, including one to remove his thymus gland in his chest that limited his ability to lift certain items. Years after the initial diagnosis, the victim had not improved so he sought the opinion of a new physician. His new physician diagnosed him with a different condition and discontinued certain medication and treatment from the prior diagnosis. The victim responded better to his new treatment.

As reported by WMC Memphis, a Galilee Memorial Gardens Cemetery (“Galilee”) bookkeeper was arrested on March 29, 2014, the second arrest in connection with the Galilee scandal that has been featured on local and national news throughout 2014. According to investigators, bookkeeper Corey Taylor used Galilee office records to hide multiple bodies buried in single graves. He was charged with theft of property and the abuse of a corpse. Per investigators, Taylor also witnessed certain criminal acts occur at Galilee Memorial Gardens Cemetery, including another Galilee employee crushing caskets with a backhoe in order to make room for additional caskets.

In early 2014, news outlets in Memphis and across the United States began extensively reporting about heinous and shocking acts that occurred at Galilee Memorial Gardens Cemetery near Memphis, Tennessee. Galilee employees have been accused of stacking and desecrating bodies and burying multiple bodies in single graves. In addition, Galilee Memorial Gardens Cemetery has been operating without a valid Tennessee license since December 31, 2010, but many funeral homes continued to do business with Galilee after that date. Galilee Memorial Gardens Cemetery was officially shut down in January 2014 due, in part, to the unspeakable allegations described above. On February 21, 2014, former U.S. Attorney David Kustoff was officially appointed by the State of Tennessee as the Special Deputy Receiver for Galilee, meaning he has taken over operations at Galilee Memorial Gardens Cemetery and is in charge of investigating certain records and wrongdoing.

On February 27, 2014, Nahon, Saharovich and Trotz (“NST Law”) filed a class action lawsuit against Galilee Memorial Gardens Cemetery (“Galilee”) and various funeral homes concerning the mishandling of bodies and corpses at Galilee Memorial Gardens Cemetery. The $225 million dollar class action complaint was filed in the Circuit Court of Shelby County, Tennessee. Tennessee Circuit Courts are courts of general jurisdiction, meaning they may hear many types of civil cases and are the proper forum for tort cases such as this Tennessee class action lawsuit.
