Michigan Judge Throws Out Burial Mix-Up Lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - A judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed by a woman who said a mix-up at a southwestern Michigan cemetery led her parents to be buried apart.

Myra Fish was seeking millions for what she said was gross negligence by Mount Ever-Rest Memorial Park South in Portage.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports that Kalamazoo County Circuit Judge Pamela Lightvoet dismissed the suit on Monday.

Lightvoet also sanctioned the Southfield law firm working on Fish's behalf.

The judge says the cemetery correctly honored the contract it had with Fish's family. And she says the lawsuit's allegations are barred by the state's statute of limitations.
