Dead from eating bad oysters?

No, it turns out, very much alive, and now a Florida couple may have to give back that $2 million insurance payout [Sioux Falls, S.D. Argus-Leader via Obscure Store]

Since he is a Hindu maybe she can claim that he really did die and was reincarnated.

Following up on Richard Nieporent’s idea, should people who believe in life after death be able to collect damages for wrongful death, loss of consortium, etc.?

The insurance company should sue the couple demanding that they complete their end of the contract by specific performance.

Bill, if he came back as a Newt, then his wife might still have a reasonable claim at loss of consortium. And his earning capacity might be hampered somewhat unless he can get a job as a competing insurance spokesperson to go up against the Gecko.

Masterful plan, truly a genius thought of this. NOT. What did the knuckle head think was going to happen when he tried to renew his passport?
