The California Supreme Court is set to review an appellate court ruling in Elayne Valdez v. Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, a case that allowed doctors who are not part of an employer’s workers comp medical network to submit medical reports in comp cases. The high court’s seven justices voted unanimously Wednesday to review the Valdez case, according to the Supreme Court docket. The court will consider an unpublished ruling by California’s District Court of Appeal from last May, which allowed the admission of reports from doctors outside of medical provider networks.
