Joanna Lopez vs. William S. Hart Unified School District; York Insurance Company

is a case involving Joanna Lopez, an employee of the William S. Hart Unified School District, who filed a petition for reconsideration after the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board denied her claim for workers' compensation. The case was a contest of credibility between Lopez and the school district, with Lopez claiming that her industrial exposure to stress was the predominant cause of her current condition. The court found that Lopez had failed to meet her burden of proof as to predominant causation and denied her petition for reconsideration.
