In whose court does comp claim fall? : Unknown : Knoxville News Sentinel: "Anxious UT fans are waiting for basketball season to start to see if Bruce Pearl’s magic continues. Meanwhile, employers across the state are more anxious about a recent decision from the Tennessee Supreme Court holding that the widow of an employee who died as a result of a basketball game was entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. The employee worked for Coors Technical Ceramic Co. The employee was playing basketball on a court purchased by a group of employees and installed on the company’s premises. There was no question that the employer knew that employees played basketball three to four times a week during their break. Supervisors even joined in the games occasionally."
