Supreme Court to Hear Arguments on SB1062 - Workers Comp Reform

The Case heard before the supreme court on SB1062 will now go before the supreme court.  This would seem to give the case against the bill more validity.

Yesterday, the Oklahoma Supreme Court announced it will assume original jurisdiction of this law suit.  The court also directed that oral arguments to the full court be heard on Tuesday, December 10, 2013.  Both parties (for and against the 2013 reforms and the Option) will have an opportunity to present their case and respond to questions from the justices.

In the event part of all of the law is overturned, it's expected the Legislature will act quickly to pass smaller bills to offset any negative decision.
