Supreme Court Decided Not to Decide Illegal Alien Issue

                               The US Supreme Court has determined that States should be left to decided whether illegal aliens should be barred from collecting workers' compensation benefits.

A report in Insurance Journal provides further insight:
"The U.S. Supreme Court recently declined to hear a workers’ compensation insurance case that concerned an illegal immigrant in Louisiana who had sought coverage after a workplace accident. The Court’s refusal to consider the case means states are left to decide the issue of whether workers who entered the United States illegally may benefit from workers’ compensation coverage."
