Workers' Comp. Court Can't Peek for Privilege

Regents of the Univ. of Cal. v. Workers’ Compensation Appeals Bd., No. G048217 (D3 June 17, 2014)

The court here holds that the provisions of the Evidence Code dealing with privilege apply in workers’ comp. appeals. Since § 915 prohibits a presiding officer from ordering the in camera production of materials to see if they are privileged, the WCAB erred in so ordering in this case.


Reversed.
