Bethlehem Steel Company v. Industrial Accident Commission , 30 Cal.2d 920
[S. F. No. 17431. In Bank. June 26, 1947.]
BETHLEHEM STEEL COMPANY (a Corporation), Petitioner, v. INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT COMMISSION and CARL ZDECHLIK, Respondents.
R. P. Wisecarver for Petitioner.
R. C. McKellips and John A. Rowe, Jr., for Respondents.
OPINION OF THE COURT
Petitioner, a self-insurer, seeks to annul an order of the Industrial Accident Commission awarding compensation to an injured employee. The industrial injury occurred prior to the effective date of the 1945 amendment of Labor Code, section 4661, but no claim was filed with the commission until after that date, and the award was made pursuant to the section as amended. Otherwise the facts are substantially the same as those in Aetna Casualty & Surety Co. v. Industrial Acc. Com., ante, p. 388 [182 P.2d 159], and for the reasons stated in that case it must be held that the commission improperly gave a retroactive effect to the amendment.
The award is annulled and the cause is remanded for further proceedings.
I dissent upon the same grounds stated in my dissenting opinion in Aetna Casualty & Surety Co. v. Industrial Acc. Com., ante, p. 388 [182 P.2d 159], this day filed.
