Do You Have the Winning Numbers?

By Judge Pamela Johnson, Knoxville

10, 33, 41, 47, 56, and 10.

These are the winning numbers for the record-breaking $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot, with one winning ticket sold at Joe’s Service Center in Altadena, located in Los Angeles County, California.

While winning lottery numbers are thrilling, having the correct numbers is important in other ways, too.

Have you seen the new orange code book or searched the online version of the Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Laws Annotated? If you have, you may have noticed that the pre-reform statutes removed. More importantly, some of the new law code sections were renumbered after subsections/subdivisions deleted by the 2013 Reform Act were removed, which affected the lettering/numbering in those sections.

For example, in the 2021 and earlier versions, the definition of injury was codified in section 50-6-102(14). In the 2022 version, the definition of injury can be found in section 50-6-102(12). Another example, mileage reimbursement for travel to medical appointments, was previously located in section 50-6-204(a)(6)(A); it can now be found in section 50-6-204(a)(4)(A). These are only two examples, but many more subsection/subdivisions were renumbered/relettered.

So, before you cut and paste from an old brief or cite from memory, take a moment to check the orange book and make sure your numbers (and letters) are correct.
