S.G. v. The Personal Insurance Company (16-000338)

The claimant sought to admit an audio recording he made during an IE assessment. The insurer objected to the audio recording being entered as evidence. Adjudicator Lester relied upon the section 15 of the SPPA in establishing her authority to determine what evidence to admit at the hearing. She concluded that the audio recording was not relevant to the issues in dispute and was therefore not admitted into evidence.

A.A. v. State Farm (16-000448)

The claimant sought a waiver of the $100 LAT filing fee in accordance with the Administration of Justice Act. The LAT held that the Administration of Justice Act did not apply to Tribunals, and, even if it did, the claimant had not provided a sufficient factual basis for granting a fee waiver.
