Texas Mutual Insurance Co. v. Mendez

Court: Tx 7-Amarillo  05/26/2020  Court of Appeals Affirms Finding of No Intoxication in Worker's Compensation Dispute but Remands on Issue of Award of Attorneys' Fees

The court found that sufficient evidence existed that, despite the presence of marijuana metabolites in the deceased worker's blood, he was not intoxicated at the time of death and, therefore, death benefits were owed to his mother. The court, however, remanded the issue of the trial court's award of attorneys' fees.
