Appeals Board to Hear Arguments in Knoxville

The Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board announced it will conduct its next set of oral arguments in Knoxville for the first time since the Board’s creation in 2014.

First up at the June 22 arguments is Evans v. The Home Depot U.S.A, Inc., where the Court will review the grant of summary judgment favoring the employer entered by Judge Brian Addington, Kingsport. Counsel failed to comply with a number of scheduling deadlines in the case.

The second matter is Thysavathdy v. Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, where Judge Audrey Headrick, Chattanooga, found Mr. Thysavathdy failed to prove medical causation at his compensation hearing.

The arguments commence at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time at the Supreme Court Building in Knoxville.
