Over a year and a half ago Icanceled my membership in Illinois Funeral Directors Association. Paying an organization that questionably handled folks funeral preneed funds to the tune of nearly 100 million dollars is simply something I could not do!
Recently because of other questionable actions the judge has stated that the insurance company for the Illinois Funeral Directors Association did not have to insure the debacle, theft or ponzi scheme. Now it appears that the IFDA, Illinois Funeral Directors Association is appealing that decision.
The Illinos Funeral Directors Association has decided to appeal a federal judge’s ruling that IFDA’s insurer would not be responsible for claims resulting from litigation surrounding the association’s beleaguered Master Trust …………
“Our lawyers believe that there are several arguments that can be made during the appeal that may allow for this ruling to be overturned,” said Duane Marsh, IFDA executive director. He noted that the appeal process can take up to 12 months depending upon the court’s schedule.
