Cal Law Trends and Developments
The reviewing Courts in 1969, enjoyed an open season in reviewing Workmen's Compensation Appeals Board factual determinations, much in the manner reported in last year's article. The comments made by the legislature (and some members of the State Supreme Court) on the courts' hunting without a license have been to no avail.
The legislature, for all practical purposes, was inactive in the field of workmen's compensation. There were important developments in case law, but some of the cases that may well work important changes in the field of workmen's compensation law are presently in various stages of appeal.
