The Arkansas Supreme Court has set oral arguments in Cannady v. St. Vincent's Infirmary for September 13, 2012. I will be participating on behalf of the plaintiff. The Arkansas Supreme Court assumed jurisdiction of this case because of the importance of the issues involved. The question is whether family members of a deceased person have any rights to bring a lawsuit against people who invaded the deceased person's privacy before death. We are optimistic that the Court will rule in our favor, but whatever the outcome, this case will be important in determining the extent of the right to privacy under Arkansas law.
