This Monday a class action lawsuit was filed in Marion County, Indiana, alleging that a funeral home took advantage of people with mental illnesses. The guardian of one of the alleged victims filed the claim against Crown Hill Management that does business as the Crown Hill Funeral Home and Cemetery. According to the suit the funeral home violated Indiana’s Pre-Need Act accusing it of targeting patients that reside in mental health care facilities to sell them expensive funeral service packages. This lawsuit seeks to obtain class status for any Indiana resident that was under the care of a health facility and purchased pre-need services from Crown Hill Funeral Home and Cemetery.
