RICO cause of action re: Workers’ Compensation

Many of my disability clients become disabled as the result of an on the job injury. Our firm handles workers’ compensation claims in Georgia and Tennessee. In what appears to be a very important decision, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit ruled that the plaintiffs’ claims against Sedgwick, Coca Cola, and Dr. Drouillard under the Racketeer Influenced and Correct Organizations Act (“RICO”) should not have been dismissed by the District Court. Jackson v. Segwick Claims Management Services, No. 10-1453 (6th Cir. November 2, 2012). The case of Brown v. Cassens Transport Co., 675 F.3d 946 (6th Cir. 2012), is a must read as well.
