Highlight

In an administrative agency case, the factual findings from a final decision by an independent administrative law judge are reviewed under the same standard of review used for agency decisions. The legal conclusions from a final decision by an independent administrative law judge are not entitled to similar deference and are reviewed in the same manner as legal conclusions generally.
Where a reasoning mind reasonably could have determined the weight of the evidence from the record supported the finding that a heart attack resulting in death was caused by unusual stress resulting from an employee's employment with reasonable medical certainty and that the unusual stress was at least fifty percent of the cause of the heart attack as compared with all other contributing causes combined, the reviewing court will affirm.
