Alabama Judge Amends Workers’ Compensation Act Order

Update: Following the entry of his May 8, 2017 Order finding the Alabama Workers’ Compensation Act unconstitutional, Judge Pat Ballard has now entered an amended order, likely in light of the industry response.  Under the amended order, the original May 8, 2017 order is stayed indefinitely, instead of becoming effective in 120 days.  The stated intention is to provide time for the legislature to act.  The judge specifically stated that a new order would be issued providing 30 days’ notice prior to implementation if the legislature is not able to provide a “comprehensive solution” to these issues surrounding the 220 cap and attorney’s fees.  Meanwhile, the court intends to continue to “administer pending workers’ compensation claims within its jurisdiction in accordance with the current Act.
