Hartford's appeal in the conciliation case is reinstated



The Court of Appeals of South Carolina on Wednesday reinstated an appeal by The Hartford Financial Group Inc. in a settlement case after failing to submit its assignment on time due to a clerical error.

The workers' compensation case began when Hartford tried to enforce an attachment against a settlement, which was denied by a single commissioner and then appealed to the entire South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission, according to documents in Tammy Jordan v. The Hartford Financial Group, Inc. filed in Court of Appeals in South Carolina and Columbia.

Following Hartford's appeal, a summary form and notice of appeal proceedings were served informing that the appellant's letter would be ready on 1

2 May 2019 and that the defendant "may" file a letter within 15 days of service of the appellant's letter, but did not indicate which appellants or defendants was, according to court documents.

A lawyer for Hartford's representative wrongly believed H. artford was the defendant and stated that his mandate would come on 27 May instead of 12 May. The Commission rejected Mr Hartford's appeal on 23 May for failure to submit his assignment on time. The lawyer explained the confusion and immediately proceeded to reinstate his appeal on the "good cause" rule due to "an honest human error". The Commission denied "without explanation", it says in documents. Hartford appealed.

In his view, the Court of Appeal called the Commission's reasoning to deny good grounds for "a mystery" and considered the Commission's summary denial to be "arbitrary and an abuse of discretion", and decided to reinstate Hartford's original appeal.
