Regents of the Univ. of Cal. v. Superior Court, B210693

In an action against the Regents of the University of California for negligence because of alleged wrongdoing and mishandling of donated bodies by the UCLA Willed Body Program, a denial of summary judgment is reversed by a writ of mandate where, because plaintiffs' decedent's body donation was "irrevocable" upon her death, plaintiffs could not enter into an agreement with UCLA regarding the body, and representations UCLA allegedly made to plaintiffs did not create a duty to them.
