CAPITOL BRIEFS

Workers'

comp judge

is named

Gov. Mary Fallin has appointed Judge L. Brad Taylor, of Tulsa, to serve as presiding judge of the Oklahoma Workers' Compensation Court. Taylor, whom Fallin appointed to the workers' compensation court earlier this year, succeeds Judge Michael J. Harkey as presiding judge on the court. Harkey will continue to serve on the panel. As part of a state law that passed and was signed into law last year, the governor is required to appoint a new presiding judge to serve a two-year term beginning Jan. 1. The workers' compensation court resolves legal disputes involving those injured in the workplace. In addition to presiding over all meetings of the court, the presiding judge also has other supervisory responsibilities relating to such areas as personnel, budgetary and financial management.
