Event Details

Michael Burg and Holly Kammerer will discuss Beecher, et al. v. Biological Resource Corporationet al., CV2015-013391, Maricopa County Superior Court. In 2019, Michael and Holly secured a $58.5 million dollar verdict in compensatory and punitive damage for families who had donated bodies of their deceased loved ones to the Biological Resource Center. They represented the victims of a fraudulent scheme to illegally sell human body parts of their loved one’s bodies that were supposed to be donated for scientific and medical education and research. The verdict is one of the largest civil case results in Arizona history. They will go through a brief timeline of the case, discuss many of the pertinent facts that made the case into a $58.5M jury verdict, along with the various steps along the way to this ultimate success, including the appeal.  The point of the presentation will be not just the actual case, but also the idea that not all cases resolve quickly and trial lawyers have to be prepared to stick with it for the long haul. It’s kind of a “never give up” presentation that follows the facts of this specific case.
