I am pleased to share with our readers Specialmaster Kathleen Blatz has recommended and Ramsey County Chief Judge Kathleen Gearin has agreed to reopen parts of Minnesota Workers Compensation system. The Order has led to a series of workers' compensation judges and staff being recalled. Today 4 judges; Schultz, Knight, Brenden and Rieke began going through stipulations for settlements, scheduling NOID conferences and preparing to schedule hearings on expedited medical disputes such as surgical requests. I learned today that 4 other judges will join them tomorrow ramping up the return for going through the mountain of accumulated paperwork. It is hoped that with the start of today's special session called by Governor Dayton, business will be back to normal soon....but not soon enough for many injured workers.
