Cox, State ex rel. v. Greyhound Food Mgt., Inc. (5/29/02)

Commission properly denied claimant’s request to depose doctor. Substantial disparity between doctors’ reports did not exist because even though there was a substantial difference between the disability percentages assigned by the doctors, both doctors agreed that claimant was capable of working and claimant had opportunity to contest alleged flaws in the report by presentation at hearing.
