Fernando Pineda vs. Jose Casillas And/or Joseph Snyder (deceased), Legally Uninsured / Jose Casillas And/or Joseph Snyder (deceased), Illegally Uninsured

(SDO 0346007) is a case in which Fernando Pineda, the applicant, was injured while picking avocados on the property of Joseph Snyder (Deceased). Jose Casillas was also involved in the case as an illegally uninsured defendant. The Workers' Compensation Appeals Board denied the Petition for Reconsideration filed by Joseph Snyder (Deceased) on the grounds that the trial judge's finding on credibility was entitled to great weight. The Board found that there was no substantial evidence that Casillas alone was Pineda's employer on the day of the injury, nor that Casillas and Snyder together were Pineda's employers.
