While the bills do not specifically mention lesbian and gay couples, they are viewed as narrow versions of religious freedom acts passed in a number of states to shield businesses that want to refuse service to same-sex couples from discrimination lawsuits. Supporters say the acts protect religious freedoms, while others say they are licenses to discriminate.

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 06/11/2015 - 02:57
The family of a New York City teen who died in a car crash had no right to be notified that his brain was removed during an autopsy, New York state's top court ruled, overturning a $600,000 jury verdict awarded to his parents. The Court of Appeals said on Wednesday that when the New York City medical examiner removed Jesse Shipley's brain for further inspection in 2005, it did not violate his family's right of sepulcher, an old legal provision that gives families the right to possession of a relative's remains. A spokesman for the City Law Department said his office was pleased with the decision.
