TIMOTHY RUSKIN v. LEDIC REALTY SERVICES, LTD. (TWCA February 25, 2011)
In this workers' compensation action, the employee, Timothy Ruskin, worked as a maintenance technician for Ledic Realty Services, Ltd. (Ledic), which managed several apartment buildings. Mr. Ruskin was injured while responding to an after-hours call from a tenant of one of the apartment buildings. In response to his compensation claim, Ledic asserted as an affirmative defense that Mr. Ruskin's injuries resulted from his intoxication. After a hearing, the trial court ruled in Ledic's favor, and Mr. Ruskin appealed. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
