5458 - Turner v. SAIIA Construction

William Lee Turner appeals the Appellate Panel of the South Carolina Workers' Compensation (the Commission) decision and order denying him benefits under the Workers' Compensation Act (the Act). Turner argues the Commission erred in: (1) failing to apply the presumption that his injury arose out of and in the course of employment; (2) affirming the single commissioner's findings of fact; (3) finding he did not establish a cause for his accidental injury; and (4) allowing Respondents to draft the Commission's order. We affirm.

5459 - Stone v. Thompson

Susan B. Thompson appeals the family court's order finding the existence of a common law marriage between her and A. Marion Stone, III. We dismiss.
