Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals Board

Attorneys 1:

Gregory Fuller, Brentwood, Tennessee, for the employer-appellant, HDK Industries, Inc.

Attorneys 2:

Terry Risner, Mt. Carmel, Tennessee, for the employee-appellee, Linda Lawson.

Judge(s): HENSLEY

The employer in this interlocutory appeal questions the trial court’s refusal to dismiss the employee’s claim following a show cause hearing, asserting the employee failed to show cause as to why the case should not be dismissed based upon her failure to request a hearing in accordance with Tennessee Code Annotated section 50-6-239(a) and Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 0800-02-21-.12(1). Finding the trial court did not abuse its discretion in refusing to dismiss the employee’s claim, we affirm the trial court’s decision and remand the case.
