DEWEY GIBSON, JR. v. HIDDEN MOUNTAIN RESORT, INC. (TWCA December 14, 2011)
The employee sought workers' compensation for a back injury which arose out of and in the scope of his employment with the employer. The trial court found that because the employee had a meaningful return to work and was subsequently dismissed for job misconduct, he was limited to benefits of 1.5 times the 20% anatomical impairment rating. The evidence does not preponderate against the trial court's factual findings; the judgment is, therefore, affirmed.
