WAL-MART STORES, INC., and AMERICAN HOME ASSURANCE CORP. (AIG), Petitioners-Appellants,
KIMBERLY HANCOCK, Respondent-Appellee.
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Donna L. Paulsen, Judge.
The employer and its insurer appeal the district court's judicial review decision affirming the workers' compensation commissioner's decision.
Laura J. Ostrander of Ostrander Law Firm, P.L.L.C., Ankeny, for appellants.
R. Saffin Parris-Sams of Soldat & Parrish-Sams, P.L.C., West Des Moines, for appellee.
Considered by Eisenhauer, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Doyle, JJ.
Wal-Mart Stores (employer) and American Home Assurance (AIG) (insurance carrier) appeal from an adverse ruling on their petition for judicial review of final agency action of the Iowa Workers' Compensation Commissioner. Appellants challenge the agency's determinations that (1) denied their motions to compel and motion in limine; (2) failed to amend costs; (3) denied their application for admission of additional evidence; (4) awarded temporary partial disability; and (5) awarded permanent total disability.
After a careful review of the record, the briefs of the parties, and the district court's thorough and well-reasoned opinion, we conclude the district court's ruling should be affirmed without opinion pursuant to Iowa Rule of Appellate Procedure 6.1203 subsections (a), (c), and (d).
