Employment — workers compensation — competency

Besse Forest Products, Inc., appeals a judgment affirming a Labor and Industry Review Commission decision concluding that Michael Lopez sustained a permanent total disability. Because Besse failed to name its worker’s compensation insurer as a party in the circuit court proceedings, the court lacked competency to adjudicate the matter. Accordingly, we reverse the judgment and, on remand, direct the circuit court to dismiss Besse’s complaint. This opinion will not be published.
