Kimetra Newton secures win on excessive copy service fees.

Congratulations to Kimetra Newton, who scored a big win for our client, saving a large amount of money on excessive copy service fees! Kimetra invoked our client’s right to request the WCJ resolve the threshold issue by concurrently filing a DOR and a Petition for Determination of Non-IBR Medical Legal Dispute. She argued that the copy service provider had not met their burden to prove their services were valid medical-legal expenses under Labor Code Section 4620, nor were the fees recoverable as “copy related services” under 8 C.C.R. Section 9980(b), and therefore not recoverable under Labor Code Section 4621. Kimetra was quickly recognized by our client and her colleagues for this amazing result.
