Coroners In New York Are Allowed To Take Your Brain Out Of Your Dead Body Without Telling Your Family, Appeal Court Says

no title

This doesn't seem very just to us…

The New York State Court of Appeals just made a ruling that coroners are allowed to remove the brain from a dead body without having to tell the deceased's family.

The decision came after the case of Jesse Shipley, a 17-year-old in Staten Island who died in a car accident back in 2005.

After his death and funeral, Jesse's classmates went on a school trip to the city mortuary and saw his brain on display in formalin, a kind of preservative agent.

We're not sure why the school funded such a morbid trip, but regardless, Jesse's parents Andre and Korisha Shipley found out that their dead son's brain was not buried with the rest of his body and promptly sued the city for emotional distress and neglect.

Well, in Appellate court, the Shipleys originally won $1 million in damages, but after the city appealed the decision,

Keep making progress, Tracy Morgan! You can do it!

On Monday, the comedian was spotted at the Bergen Town Center Outlets in New Jersey shopping with his fiancée Megan Wollover and their daughter.

The 46-year-old was seen walking with the assistance of a cane, which is no different from his last public appearance in February, where he used the helper while entering a rehab facility.

Ever since his car accident last June — where a Walmart truck driver hit his limo, killing friend James McNair and leaving him with brain and limb injuries — the 30 Rock star has been slowly but surely making improvements with his recovery.

As we reported last month, the conglomerate paid $10 million dollars to McNair's children, Jamel and Danita.

Morgan has sued the company for "careless and negligent ownership and operation of its motor vehicle." In response, the retail corporation countersued claiming he wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

Even with his condition, the funnyman is determined to get back into comedy.

We can't wait for the day when Tracy will make us laugh again.
