From the Rules for the Mileage Plus Program

7. Accrued mileage and certificates do not constitute property of the member. Neither accrued mileage nor certificates are transferable (i) upon death, (ii) as part of a domestic relations matter, or (iii) otherwise by operation of law.

BTW, aren't you the person who began the now legendary, "do people stash the naughty mags in behind the drawers in hotels rooms?" thread?
I want to be able to write contracts that state "the law doesn't apply".

Yeah, that'll work in a court of law.
