Miriam Cherry (Hofstra) writes to tell us about some absolutely hysterical workers compensation decisions highlighted in the Crain, Kim, & Selmi Worklaw casebook.
1. Carroll v. Workers' Comp Bd, 750 A.2d 938 (Pa. Commw. Ct. 2000) (man surpresses sneeze during meeting, is injured, and may recover compensation).
2. Eckis v. Sea World Corp., 134 Cal. Rptr 183 (1976) (injury resulting from riding Shamu the whale).
Is Workers' Comp law a barrel of laughs or what?
