Thompson v. Liberty Northwest Ins. Corp. [6/12/02] 2002 MTWCC 34 The holding in Homme that a claimant in school has voluntarily removed himself from the labor market, thus is not suffering a wage loss on account of his injury, and is therefore not entitled to TTD benefits, was in the context of a claimant who has reached MMI and has a labor market. The holding is inapplicable to a claimant who has not reached MMI.
