Friends — I am bogged down this week in the labyrinth that is ERISA preemption, so my musings have been “somewhat” restrained. I did, however, want to take a survey of my Wyoming Workers’ Compensation colleagues. One objective I hope to accomplish with this blog is to stimulate discussion of problematic areas of Wyoming Workers’ Compensation Law. I wanted to ask you as practitioners in the field — from your perspective, what substantive or procedural areas of law are — for lack of a better phrase — messed up? What have the Wyoming Supremes gotten wrong? What gaps in the law cause you problems? What areas of the law do you find impenetrable?
It is my hope that your comments will generate conversation among yourselves, and when I have had a chance to review results next week I’ll give you my take on them. Then, I’m happy to give everyone my two cents on some or all of the areas identified. Perhaps this can even be the starting point for organizing a Wyoming Workers’ Compensation CLE (which I understand is sorely needed) around identified problematic areas.
