Does California law require an autopsy if the death is in a teaching hospital?
An autopsy is not required when a person has been under physicians care in a medical facility at the time of death. The exceptions would be, if the cause of death cannot be determined or if there is reason to believe negligence or a criminal act (such as assisted suicide) is involved. Immediate family members have the legal right to request an autopsy if they so choose whether the attending physician is in agreement or not.

Does Michigan law require an autopsy?
Autopsies are not generally "required" in any state by law. However, the autopsy is a tool the Medical Examiner uses to determine the cause of Death: Homicide. Accidental. Natural Causes. This way the police have more information on the victim to best bring justice to the family. Now, an autopsy is sometimes "requested" by a Life Insurance Provider before the release of any benefits. Also, the victims family can "request" an auotopsy not be performed because of religious reasons. However, an autopsy is not always needed if the person died from a diagnosed terminal illness, and has been in the care of a physician. In any case whether autopsies is performed or not performed is ususally up to the family.

Asked in Elections and Voting
When is a runoff election required in texas?
To quote Texas law, "If no candidate for a particular office receives the vote necessary to be elected in an election requiring a majority vote, a runoff election for that office is required." Since originally answering this question, I have learned that in the case of elections governed by Texas state law rather than local law only primaries require a majority vote.
