$100 Million Recovery for Grave Desecration

Ervin A. Gonzalez and his class action team achieved a $100 million settlement from Service Corporation International (SCI), a national funeral company, and its subsidiary, Menorah Gardens Cemetery. The case alleged that the companies buried families in the wrong graves, and the company agreed to compensate for the families’ grievances and provide in-kind services. Partner Julie Braman Kane managed the personal relationships with the more than 15,000 class members.
