Administration in California Requests Judges to Vacate Their Decision Against AMA Guides

California Administration officials have written to the California Appellate Judges and requested that they vacate their decision setting aside the AMA Guides.  The letter, an unprecedented action, has not yet received a response from the California Workers' Compensation Appellate Court.

However, Todd McFarren, a California attorney and President of the California Applicants Attorneys Association, has remarked that the the Judges, will “...still be handcuffed by the administration’s inadequate permanent disability schedule.”  “The administration has not addressed the fundamental flaws in its disability rating schedule. We’ve been waiting more than a year for the governor to approve his own administration’s proposal to restore a small percentage of the permanent disability compensation he cut by 50% to 70%.”
