NEW ORLEANS (RNS) Wearing a monk's robe, Abbot Justin Brown climbed into
the witness box on Monday (June 6) and said the only people who ever
opposed his abbey's bid to sell handmade caskets were funeral insiders
who stood to lose their statewide monopoly.
"To my knowledge, no one objected besides (them)," he told U.S.
District Judge Stanwood Duval.
