As part of a settlement of a class-action lawsuit, Service Corporation International agrees to pay $100 million to Jewish families whose relatives' remains were misplaced — or in some cases, disinterred — in two Florida cemeteries. NPR's Michele Norris talks to Noah Bierman, a reporter for The Miami Herald, about the case.
