Falconi v. Coombs & Coombs, Inc., 387, 2005

In a worker's compensation action, although substantial evidence in the record supports the Industrial Accident Board's factual findings in a judgement in favor of defendant-employer, the Board erred in its application of the law to the facts. Applying Restatement (Second) of Agency Section 220, plaintiff was an employee, not an independent contractor, eligible for worker's compensation benefits.
