Others may not have those qualms, however. This comes from the June 2009 Summary of Attorney General's Opinions:
CORONERS (MEDICAL EXAMINERS)
A regional medical examiner district may employ or contract with one or more pathologists to serve as medical examiners of the district, which will perform postmortem examinations and autopsies for the counties involved. (Shivers, 6/26/2009)(#047)(OP-09-00268)
I can't find the opinion itself online, but it'd be nice to see who requested it. Are some counties looking to pool their resources to hire back Dr. Hayne?
