Judicial Review: Stay on Appeal to WCC
Standard Fire Ins. v. Victoria Austin [4/13/99] 1999 MTWCC 26 Insurer appealed determination of DOL hearing officer that claimant suffered from an occupational disease. Under DOL order, claimant was entitled to retroactive benefits of approximately $29,000.00. Insurer requested stay of payment of retroactive benefits pending resolution of appeal in WCC. Where claimant will receive biweekly benefits, and insurer's solvency is not at issue, stay is appropriate pending resolution of appeal in WCC.
