Judge:CLARK

First Paragraph:

This workers' compensation appeal has been referred to the Special
Workers' Compensation Appeals Panel of the Supreme Court in accordance
with Tenn. Code Ann. S 50-6-225(e)(3) for hearing and reporting of
findings of fact and conclusions of law.  The issues presented by this
appeal are whether the trial court erred in finding that the statutory
presumption created by Tenn. Code Ann. S 7-51-201 applied to plaintiff
and whether or not the defendant's medical proof overcame the
presumption.  The panel concludes that the judgment of the trial court
awarding benefits should be reversed and the case dismissed for the
reasons stated herein.
