Appeals court overturns workers' comp case

The Iowa Court of Appeals overturned a district court ruling that originally held the city of Ames liable for paying for the treatment of a city employee's injury. 

The original case was between Jerry Tillman, a 25-year-old employee at the city's power plant, and the city of Ames. Tillman was injured on Dec. 17, 2005, when he slipped on ice while at work. The city initially declined to pay for the treatment. But the state review board and the district court held the city liable. 

With the court of appeals overturning the district court's decision, the case will be resubmitted to the district court for retrial under the new guidelines.
