Romanian Court Informs Man He’s Legally Dead

Romanian Court Informs Man He’s Legally Dead:  A 63-year-old Romanian man asked the court in the town of Barlad to overturn a death certificate obtained by his wife after he had spent the last two decades in Turkey, completely out of contact with his family - but the court instead ruled him he was too late and would have to remain officially deceased. 

Good grief - as if poor Romania didn’t have enough image problems - what with Dracula and all the vampires, now they’ve got to deal with the undead rising too?  I’m half afraid to ask if he’s a “Born Again Christian.”  And while I’m obviously no legal expert, I think the court is dead wrong on this issue.  I mean, is it gonna kill them to change their ruling and give the poor man a break?  After all, this isn’t exactly a life and death issue - and the poor man has become merely a shadow of the man he used to be - at least legally.    

Now if this were me, the first thing I’d do is find myself a gig endorsing one of those fly-by-night health products. "This man is legally dead, but after only one treatment from our clinically-tested concoction, he is back among the living and once again - enjoying life.”  Hell, I say its time to run up a bunch of bills, write bad checks, forget to pay your taxes and double park in front in front of the local Transylvania Starbucks - and when they try to collect, just refer them to your estate.  After all, you’re dead - and life is good.

There has to be a way for him to take advantage of it like you suggest.

In terms of being legally dead, I’m wondering if his wife remarried and his return theoretically nullifies her later marriage if he is judged to be alive.

It may - but I suspect the court is trying to punish him for abandoning his family

Dead people can't be prosecuted....

On the flip side, they can't be murdered either

Can you imagine being able to to use the death certificate and the court's ruling as an affirmative defense to a chrge of bank robbery?
