Louisiana Funeral Directors Sue Monks
What´s up with this? In Louisana funeral directors were threatening a bunch of monks who were hand-crafting coffins out of pine trees knocked down by Hurricane Katrina with jail time. After the threat, the monks continued to make caskets, but tried to keep the activity quiet The funeral regulatory board literally sent out investigators to go spy on them to see if they were still selling caskets. After collecting evidence, they hit the monks with a subpoena, and are attempting to fine the monks for selling such caskets. In response, the monks are filing a federal lawsuit, claiming that they were being shut out of the market by a "casket cartel.".
The Louisiana funeral regulatory board has nine members, eight of whom are in the funeral industry.
