Court wants to examine new workers’ comp appeal law
Second time in a month MSSC has asked to look at a new direct appeal statute
For the second time in a month, the Mississippi Supreme Court has called into question the constitutionality of a new law designed to streamline the appeals process for disputes arising from administrative decisions.
The court has asked for briefs related to a law the Legislature passed last session that provides for a direct appeal to the state’s high court in workers’ compensation cases. Old law mandated an appeal to a decision rendered by the Mississippi Workers Compensation Commission first go to a chancery court.
