Ed Slaughter, Barret Marshall, and Matt Sapp Win Writ of Prohibition in Arkansas Supreme Court

June 27, 2013
Arkansas Supreme Court

In a case addressing the Workers’ Compensation Act exclusivity bar, the Arkansas Supreme Court held as a threshold matter that it is improper to address arguments that a civil court can exercise jurisdiction over occupational disease claims unless a claimant adjudicates all claims before the Workers’ Compensation Commission.  Ed Slaughter, Barret Marshall, and Matt Sapp handled this case from its inception at the trial court throughout the appellate process.
