United States Ninth Circuit

Christie v. Georgia-Pacific Co., 17-70853

Reversed a denial of benefits under the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act. An employee argued that he was entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits for a permanent and disabling on-the-job injury even though he had already taken early retirement from his job. On review of the Benefits Review Board's denial of his claim for benefits, the Ninth Circuit held that his decision to retire early did not make him ineligible for workers' compensation benefits under the Act. The panel therefore reversed the administrative decision and remanded.
