California Worker’s Comp.; My Judge, Vacated Submission”; 3 weeks after the Trial; what does that mean? This was a permanent disability rating trial; the Judge issued an order vacating submission; and referred the matter to DEU. What does that mean?
Workers' Compensation Lawyer
At the trial date, the judge submitted the case to himself for a decision. After reviewing things, he decided that the rating was tricky enough that he didn't want to do it himself and so he sent it over to the rating bureau (another part of the court system) to do the rating. To do this, he had to "unsubmit" the case. Once the rating is received, both sides will have a period of time to object to the informal rating and then the judge will re-submit the case for decision.

The disability evaluator will simply take the medical report from the judge and calculate your disability based upon the Americam Medical association guidelines. This is not a bad thing at all.
we will not take any action on this case until we have a signed retainer agreement
