A new decision was issued by the Supreme Court this morning holding that the Workers’ Compensation Court does not have the authority to award attorneys’ fees to a prevailing litigant in an appeal from the Retirement Board’s denial of an accidental disability pension pursuant to RIGL Sec. 45-21.2-9.  Although I’m sure the police and fire unions will be quick to attempt to get new legislation in, in the meantime, it is an excellent result on a significant case.
