Stanley T. Case, of Butler, Means, Evins & Browne, of Spartanburg, for Petitioners.

Kathryn Williams, of Greenville, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:   Respondent filed a workers’ compensation claim to recover benefits payable as a result of an injury she suffered while allegedly employed by Werner Enterprises, Inc.  The single commissioner found for respondent, and the full commission affirmed.  Both the circuit court and the Court of Appeals affirmed.  Massey v. Werner Enterprises, Op. No. 2008-UP-126 (S.C. Ct. App. filed Feb. 20, 2008).  Petitioners have filed a petition for a writ of certiorari seeking review of the Court of Appeals’ decision.  We grant the petition for a writ of certiorari, dispense with further briefing and remand this case to the Court of Appeals for further consideration of the issues on appeal, in light of the Court’s recent opinion in Wilkinson v. Palmetto State Transp. Co., 382 S.C. 295, 676 S.E.2d 700 (2009).

REVERSED AND REMANDED.

TOAL, C.J., WALLER, PLEICONES, BEATTY and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.
