Lefiell Manufacturing v. Superior Court (Watrous), B226240

In a petition for a writ of mandate addressing the scope of the power press exception in Labor Code section 4558, petition is granted in part and denied in part because the statute does not permit a spouse to bring a loss of consortium cause of action and there are no exceptions expanding section 4558 to permit pleading other tort causes of action requiring a lesser standard of proof.
