Workers’ Compensation Commission Dismisses Claim

The Mississippi Worker’s Compensation Commission recently ruled in favor of Sandra T. Doty by dismissing the case of Percy Jones v Averitt, Inc. Dismissal of the case was due to Claimant’s lack of prosecution, and the Administrative Judge subsequently denied the Claimant’s Motion to Reinstate Claims. Following 20 days from the entry of the Denial of Claimant’s Motion to Reinstate Case, it was rendered a Final Order pursuant to Miss. Code Ann. § 71-3-47 (Supp. 2003).
