NEW YORK SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, THIRD DEPARTMENT
April 29, 2010
IN THE MATTER OF THE CLAIM OF ERICA WHITEMAN, APPELLANT,
RICHMOR AVIATION, INC., ET AL., RESPONDENTS.
WORKERS' COMPENSATION BOARD, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lahtinen, J.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Calendar Date: March 23, 2010
Before: Peters, J.P., Lahtinen, Malone Jr., Stein and Garry, JJ.
Appeal from a decision of the Workers' Compensation Board, filed August 29, 2008, which ruled that the employer's workers' compensation carrier was entitled to offset its future compensation to claimant pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law § 29 (4).
The current case arises from the same aircraft accident as in Matter of Hiser v Richmor Aviation, Inc. (___ AD3d ___ [decided herewith]) and involves the identical issue. For the reasons set forth in Hiser, we reverse and remit to the Workers' Compensation Board for further proceedings.
Peters, J.P., Malone Jr., Stein and Garry, JJ., concur.
ORDERED that the decision is reversed, without costs, and matter remitted to the Workers' Compensation Board for further proceedings not inconsistent with this Court's decision.
