Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals Board

Attorneys 1:

Dorothy Johnson, Chattanooga, Tennessee, employee-appellant, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Clifford Wilson, Nashville, Tennessee, for the employer-appellee, Pilgrim’s Pride, Inc.

Judge(s): DAVIDSON

In this second appeal of this case, the employee asserts, as she did in the prior appeal, that the settlement agreement signed by her and approved by the trial court should be set aside. Following a hearing, the trial court determined the employee’s claim was barred by res judicata and dismissed the case. The trial court also warned the employee that if she filed the case for a third time, the court would consider imposing sanctions. The employee has appealed. We affirm the trial court’s decision and certify as final the court’s order dismissing the case.
