https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/03/16/this-new-zealand-river-now-has-the-same-legal-rights-as-a-human-being/?utm_term=.ae276c5488fb

Is this in anticipation, or to preempt the move by Bader-Ginsburg?

What's next? Who will be the lucky one to be allowed to marry the river? Will a polygamous relationship with the river be allowed based on Maori traditions?

while you're on topic let's wish her a very happy 84th birthday and hope she gets to enjoy her retirement.

Repost
Coralsnake's link has several more examples of similar stories.

I think you meant to say that the link I posted had more examples of stories where a misplaced comma cost big bucks vs. coralsanke's link that just had the current Maine story (which could still be appealed).

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2017/03/18/a-father-went-to-the-hospital-with-stomach-pain-he-left-without-his-hands-and-feet/

Shocking story. Never underestimate strep!

Interesting side note is his occupation listed towards the end of the article. I wonder if he has disability waiver of premium on his own life insurance policies, and whether he has disability and long-term-care coverage.
