Emergency Injunction Against Funeral and Burial Denied

Petition for temporary injunction against the funeral and burial of the decedent’s father was denied for lack of jurisdiction when the decedent did not reside in Pennsylvania and was to be buried in another county, the only connect to Montgomery County being the location of the funeral home making the burial arrangements. The petitioner also failed to demonstrate immediate and irreparable harm, because it was alleged that preservation of the body was needed for an autopsy but there no showing of a need for an autopsy or what would be learned that could not be learned from medical records, or from a later autopsy. Gilbert Estate, 12 Fid.Rep.3d (Montgomery O.C. 2022).
