Capital Builders Hardware v. WCABAnnotate this Case
The applicant and real party in interest, Robert Goana, claimed industrial injury and filed a workers' compensation claim. Capital Builders, Goana's employer, objected to the admissibility of a medical report and requested that it be stricken. The WCJ denied Capital Builders's motions without prejudice. Capital Builders appealed, but the appeals board dismissed and denied Capital Builders's petitions for removal and reconsideration. Capital Builders now seeks a writ review in the Court of Appeal. The court concluded that the appeals board's order is not reviewable because the order is not final. Accordingly, the court annulled the writ of review and remanded the case to the appeals board.
