Los Angeles County Fire Dep't v. Workers' Comp. Appeals Bd., B214649

WCAB's denial of a county's petition for reconsideration in its claim that the battalion chief for the county fire department was not entitled to any maintenance allowance from September 8, 2005, to September 26, 2006 for his permanent disability, is affirmed in part, reversed in part, and remanded as the battalion chief's right to pending maintenance allowance ended with repeal of former section 139.5 except for that part of the maintenance allowance that was not included in the county's petition for reconsideration and, therefore, became final before the repeal of former section 139.5.
