Workers’ Comp Provider May Not Appeal Statement of Decision, Calif. Appeals Court Rules
January 14, 2020
SAN FRANCISCO — Workers’ compensation insurance provider Applied Underwriters Inc. may not appeal a court’s statement of decision (SOD) in a dispute involving its reinsurance participation agreement, because the ruling was not “final” under state law, a California appellate court has ruled.
In a Jan. 7 published opinion, the California Court of Appeals, 1st District, explained that the SOD was “a limited ruling on a discrete issue” and did not resolve the dispute, therefore it was not appealable under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 904.1, subdivision (a)(1).
