A 2005 Lawsuit Against Batesville Casket Company the world’s Largest Casket Company, Service Corporation International(NYSE:SCI), Stewart Enterprises Inc NYSE: SCI and the Alderwoods Group has been dismissed.
The Funeral Consumers Alliance ( FCA )brought forward the Lawsuit on Casket Price Fixing. The companies named are major corporate players in the Funeral Industry.(Alderwoods Group has since-2005- been purchased by Service Corporation International.)
JUST BECAUSE THE LAWSUIT WAS DISMISSED DOES NOT MEAN THAT CASKET FUNERAL COST PRICE FIXING DOES NOT OCCUR.
Lawsuits may not be the best way to solve the funeral cost or casket costs problem
Casket Price Fixing is in reality alive and well in the Funeral Industry. That is Your Funeral Guy’s opinion.
All the more reason to purchase a casket online.
