Marguerite Sweeney Appointed to WCAB

The world of California workers’ compensation is a buzz with news of Governor Brown’s new appointee to the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board.  Filling one of three vacancies, Governor Brown’s website announced on St. Valentine’s Day that Marguerite Sweeney, of Redding, would be appointed to the WCAB, pending Senate confirmation.

Soon-to-be Commissioner Sweeney is an applicant’s attorney and has received words of praise from former chairman of the WCAB, the Honorable Doug Moore, who calls Sweeney a “straight shooter.”

Commissioner Sweeney, WCDefenseCA will temporarily forgo its customary cynicism to congratulate you, and to hope that your tenure will be one remembered for justice for both applicants and defendants, crushing and punishing defeat for lien claimants, and speedy access to the final resolutions so often sought and so commonly delayed by the workers’ compensation system.

Law firms, lawyers, and all other participants eagerly await to see Commissioner Sweeney in action.
