Suppose you want your head to be cryonically suspended after your death and you make arrangements for same. And suppose your children don’t agree, and bury you — with your head. And suppose that because of your family’s actions, the firm you wanted to suspend your head was unable to get it in a timely fashion, but when they find out that your wishes weren’t honored and that they weren’t notified of your death in a timely fashion so as to fulfill their cryonic obligations to you, they sued to get your head.

Matthew Heller describes the case on OnPoint. You can read the court opinion here. The case is Alcor Life Extension Foundation v. Richardson. The court found for the cryonics firm.
