Have pity on the working man

Interesting legal fight here.

An ex-cop who says he suffered permanent injuries by being shot in the ankle on the job, has been denied benefits by the state Workers Comp Commission, which apparently doesn't believe he was injured. The commission is famously anti-worker thanks to business lobby influence on the law and governors who appoint members. The state Court of Appeals has slapped the commission down twice in this case for ignoring evidence. Now the case is going to the state Supreme Court, where biggies Wal-Mart and Tyson are weighing in on the horror of a court stepping in to help an injured working man. Can't have that, they say. Wouldn't be good for business.
