Court of Appeals of Virginia.

JULIET WRIGHT v. JAMES CITY COUNTY

Record No. 1444–11–1

Decided: December 28, 2011

Present:  Judge Frank, Alston and Senior Judge Coleman (Robert A. Rapaport;  Bonnie P. Lane;  Clark, Dolph, Rapaport, Hull, Brunick & Garriott, P.L.C., on brief), for appellee.

(Juliet Wright, on brief), pro se.

Juliet Wright (hereinafter “claimant”) appeals a decision of the Workers' Compensation Commission finding that her claims for an injury by accident and for an occupational disease are barred by the statute of limitations.   The commission also decided claimant failed to prove she had sustained a compensable injury by accident or that she was suffering from an occupational disease.1  We have reviewed the record and the commission's opinion and find that this appeal is without merit.   Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the commission in its final opinion.   See Wright v. James City Cty., VWC File No. 241–65–65 (June 20, 2011).   We dispense with oral argument and summarily affirm because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.   See Code § 17.1–403;  Rule 5A:27.2

Affirmed.
