For the past two weeks, we’ve been taking a close look at the Court’s domestic relations and juvenile justice cases.  This week and next, we’re turning our attention to two new areas of law: workers compensation on the civil side, and on the criminal docket, cases involving the elements of violent crimes.  Between 1991 and 2017, the Court has decided thirty-five workers compensation cases.

The Court decided two workers compensation cases in 1991, two in 1992, five in 1993, one in 1995 and 1996 and two in 1997.

The Court decided three workers compensation cases in 1998, one in 1999, two in 2000, six in 2001 and one in 2003.

The Court decided one workers compensation case in 2005, two in 2007, one in 2008, one in 2009 and one in 2011.

The Court has decided only three workers compensation cases since 2011 – one in 2013 and two in 2015.

Join us back here tomorrow as we turn our attention to cases involving the elements of violent crimes.
