An article about the state of the Benefits Review Board has been published at LexisNexis’ Workers’ Compensation Law Community page. Karen Koenig, Associate General Counsel of the Longshore Benefits Review Board, wrote the article, which is entitled Update from the Benefits Review Board. Among other things, it discusses the applicable law for DBA claims, as well as the Supreme Court’s grant of certiorari in Pacific Operators Offshore, LLP v. Valladolid. It is certainly an article worth reading.
