A workers trips and falls at a place of work. The worker files the standard compensation claim. Claim is denied. Among the grounds of appeal is bias, because the adjudicator who considered the claim watched a video taken at a cruise taken by the worker, where the worker is horseback riding and judging a “hairy chest” contest. On appeal, the Court held that this was not evidence of bias when the adjudicator looked at the totality of the evidece. Stanford v. V.F. Jeanswear, LP, 84 So.3d 825 (2012) (h/t Westlaw's headnote of the day)
My question: there are cruises where you can ride a horse? And where is the world going to when we have hairy chest competitions?
