Witnesses: Immunity

Montana State Fund v. Simms [03/09/09] 2009 MTWCC 9 The Workers’ Compensation Court has the powers enumerated in § 39-71-2901(2), MCA, and elsewhere in Title 39, Chapter 71, of the Montana Code Annotated, but does not automatically have the powers granted to other courts without express authority. No statutory authority within Title 39, Chapter 71, supports a grant of immunity as being within the power of this Court, and therefore the Court lacks the jurisdiction to grant the immunity Respondent seeks.
