DELAWARE RIVER STEVEDORES, INC. v. DIR., OFFICE OF WORKERS' COMP. PROGRAMS, 01-1709

Where an administrative law judge (ALJ) applied incorrect principles of law and failed to address head-on critical issue of whether a specific episode aggravated or accelerated workers' compensation claimant's condition, the ALJ's determination regarding the responsible employer for workers' compensation purposes was not supported by substantial evidence, and was properly reversed.
