....because in the FL Oct Alcor case, the family delayed the cryonics treatment thus rendering it useless compared to what it should have been. In fact, what you just suggested is, then, effectively true. Maybe that's why so many cases are confidential. Because exposure of one's plans to family members will almost always be an invitation to a legal challenge, thus delaying a time sensitive treatment. We already are well aware that a requirement for autopsy can nullify cryonics plans. I've heard that family challenges are the biggest problem in cryonics next only to autopsies. You might be onto something there.
