Deputy Chief Judge David Langham of Compensation Claims for the Florida Office of Judges of Compensation Claims and Division of Administrative Hearings posed interesting questions in his recent blog,http://flojcc.blogspot.com. If you think Texas is bad, just consider the length of his title! His questions are, “Would we be better off without workers’ compensation in any form? Would we be better off with a federal bureaucracy to replace state programs, boards and bureaucracies? Would we be better serviced with courts that stuck to the law and avoided equity? Would we be better off if regulators refrained from new rules for every perceived abuse or shortfall?” Judge Langham also posed the possibility that the human failings of anger, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride and sloth might play a part. What do you think?
