Lisa Marie Sousa (Deceased) Elisabeth Perry (Applicant), vs. Millard Group; York Risk Services Group, Inc.

Millard Group; York Risk Services Group, Inc. Lisa Marie Sousa (Deceased) Elisabeth Perry (Applicant), WORKERS’ COMPENSATION APPEALS BOARDSTATE OF CALIFORNIALISA MARIE SOUSA (Deceased) ELISABETH PERRY (Applicant),Applicant,Vs.MILLARD GROUP; YORK RISKSERVICES GROUP, INC.Defendants.Case No. ADJ9071017(Oakland District Office)OPINION AND ORDER DENYING PETITION FOR REMOVAL            We have considered the allegations of the Petition for Removal and the contents of the report of the workers’ compensation administrative law judge (WCJ) with respect thereto. Based on our review of the record, and based upon the WCJ’s analysis of the merits of defendant’s arguments in the WCJ’s report, we will deny removal.            Removal is an extraordinary remedy rarely exercised by the Appeals Board. (Cortez v. Workers’ Comp. Appeals Bd. (2006) 136 Cal.App.4th 596, 600, fn. 5 [71 Cal.Comp.Cases 155, 157, fn. 5]; Kleemann v. Workers’ Comp. Appeals Bd. (2005) 127 Cal.App.4th 274, 281, fn. 2 [70 Cal.Comp.Cases 133, 136, fn. 2].) The Appeals Board will grant removal only if the petitioner shows that substantial prejudice or irreparable harm will result if removal is not granted. (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 8, § 10843(a); see also Cortez, supra; Kleemann, supra.) Also, the petitioner must demonstrate that reconsideration will not be an adequate remedy if a final decision adverse to the petitioner ultimately issues. (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 8, § 10843(a).) Here, based upon the WCJ’s analysis of the merits of defendant’s arguments, we are not persuaded that substantial prejudice or irreparable harm will result if removal is denied and/or that reconsideration will not be an adequate remedy if the matter ultimately proceeds to a final decision adverse to petitioner.            Petitioner may raise these issues with the trial judge. ,             For the foregoing reasons,            IT IS ORDERED that the Petition for Removal is DENIED.        WORKERS’ COMPENSATION APPEALS BOARD        _______
