I have also filed a Petition for Review in the California Supreme Court that was granted.
The case was Lantz v. Workers' Compensation Appeals Board. This case was a writ. Typically I do not do writs -- only appeals. However, a Petition for Writ of Review in a Workers' Compensation case is just like an appeal. I filed the writ in the Fifth District Court of Appeal. It was summarily denied. A summary denial means that the Court of Appeal did not consider the arguments. They simply refused to consider the merits of the writ. Then, I filed the Petition for Review in the Supreme Court and the Petition for Review was GRANTED. The Supreme Court sent the matter back to the Fifth District with instructions to consider the writ. Unfortunately for the applicant, however, the Fifth District upheld the decision of the WCAB and denied benefits.
