Edith Martin, vs. Nordstrom, Permissibly Self-Insured And Self-Administered,

is a case in which Edith Martin, an employee of Nordstrom, filed a petition for reconsideration after the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board denied her petition to reopen her case. Martin argued that the medical evidence she presented constituted a petition to reopen, that the conduct of Nordstrom's claims examiner induced her to refrain from filing a petition to reopen, and that she was mentally incompetent to file a timely petition to reopen. The Workers' Compensation Appeals Board denied the petition for reconsideration, finding that the medical evidence did not constitute a petition to reopen, that the claims examiner did not induce Martin to refrain from filing a petition to reopen, and that there was not enough evidence to support Martin's claim of mental incompetence.
