Office Max Inc. v. Academy Ltd.

24 Apr 2012

Office Max Inc. v. Academy Ltd.

April 21, 2012 

                In July 2007, Sandra Richey filed an action claiming that she had acquired injuries to her knees and shoulders in 2002 and 2005. During which he was employed by Office Max, Inc. Three times she asked and was given orders requiring Office Max to award her medical care. Office Max refused, claiming that she had terminated her employment and had begun working for Academy Ltd. The party of Office Max suggested that her injuries had resulted while working for Academy Ltd. Academy filed for a summary judgment suggesting that any injuries Richey suffered, were results from injuries originally caused by her employment with Office Max. The court granted the summary judgment and a fourth motion which sought to require Office Max to pay for any and all surgeries associated with the employee’s injuries. Office Max appealed.

                Decision: Appeal dismissed. In dealing with worker’s compensation actions, the Alabama Rules of Civil Procedure apply. They state that when more than one claim is presented for relief, a final judgment must not be delayed. This case there was a pending claim for workers’ compensation, and no reference made to Rule 45. The appeals are set to be dismissed.
