Court: TN Workers Comp Appeals Board

Attorneys 1:

W. Troy Hart, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the employer-appellant, AT&T Services, LLC.

Attorneys 2:

Timothy Roberto, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the employee-appellee, Katlyn N. McLaurin.

Judge(s): CONNER

In this interlocutory appeal, the trial court determined the employee had come forward with sufficient evidence to show a likelihood of prevailing at trial in establishing entitlement to temporary disability benefits arising from a work-related mental injury. The employer appealed, asserting the employee failed to meet her burden of proof at the expedited hearing. In response, the employee asks that we find this appeal frivolous and award attorneys’ fees. We affirm the decision of the trial court, find the appeal is not frivolous, and remand the case for further proceedings.
