Federal Court in the Middle District of North Carolina. Unsure if there is anyway to compel a ruling.
Forget about "compelling" a Federal judge or magistrate judge to do anything this mundane. They will get to it eventually. You may want to go on Pacer and look up the case and just check on it, though.See question

Some of what you posted does not make a lot of sense to me as a workers' comp lawyer, so I am not sure that you have a good understanding of all the facts. Having said that, this is a dangerous time for you in your case. The adjuster is not on your side and what you say she told you is not really an accurate statement of the applicable law. You need to start researching lawyers and get ready to hire one to help you, because you are going to need one soon. Good luck.See question
My husband settled for a lump sum on a workers' compensation case 16 years ago. We were told at that time that he would no longer receive medical care after settling. It has recently come to my attention that this may have been incorrect informati...
The settlement agreement from 16 years ago should answer this question definitively.
Generally speaking, in states that allow a "full and final settlement" of a comp case by way of a "compromise settlement agreement" or "clincher " agreement, all medical benefits end with the settlement. But something else may have been negotiated, so check the actual agreement that everyone signed back then.See question
Judgement was from 2009, for work for PSNC Gas Co. Hit a gas line that was not properly marked. Have paperwork to prove I am not at fault for the damages. Judgement was filed and ruled upon without my knowledge, have 5 days before they come to col...
Your opportunity to contest it was in 2009. They could not have gotten the judgment entered without showing that the lawsuit was served upon you, probably by the sheriff. There are all kinds of safeguards to prevent a judgment from being entered against you without you having a chance to contest it. Having said all that, if a NC state court entered it, you can file a Motion to Set Aside the Judgment in the Court that rendered the judgment. See NC Rules of Civil Procedure, Rule 60.See question
Temporarily laid off after complaint about wrist injury. I did not go to the doctor or anything. My wrists are in pain and as far as I know, I am the only one who is laid off.
Legally speaking, you don't have a work-related injury until a doctor examines you and says you do. So you need to go to a doctor and get the injury checked out. But get a free consult from a work comp lawyer first so that you will know what details you need to give the doctor.See question

Sounds like you need to meet with your lawyer so he can explain the bad facts in your case and the applicable law, so that your expectations of how the case is likely to end can be brought into a reasonable spectrum.See question
I'm a Firefighter for 28 years. I have had high blood pressure for about 11 years. I've been recently diagnosed with left ventricular hypertrophy.
I cannot imagine how you would get that covered in workers' comp, as both conditions are ordinary diseases of life. Talk to a local Work Comp lawyer.See question

Tough case. You would probably have to prove with medical/scientific evidence that your illness came from the workplace. It may not be possible to prove. Talk to a good workers' comp lawyer soon. Good luck.See question
My worker's comp case has been in negotiations for a month now . I have been told there is no time table for the settlement to get done. Can this really go on indefinitely? My lawyer hasn't specifically told me what is actually the hang up in fina...
The other side is not required to settle with you on any issue, so these negotiations are likely to continue until they get a deal they think is satisfactory to their needs.See question
