The Petitioner’s claims were denied and dismissed with prejudice.

The Judge was not persuaded by the arguments raised in the objection to medical panel by Respondents.  Although the Judge determined the Petitioner had met medical causation the Judge stated that the Petitioner had failed to meet the higher standard of legal causation given his pre-existing conditions.  Ultimately the Petitioner appealed to the Board of Appeals and the Judge’s decision was affirmed.  The Petitioner appealed to the Utah Court of Appeals, but the matter was recently settled given the excellent leverage held by Respondents.
