Jill Gerdrum presented oral argument in the Montana Supreme Court on behalf of Amicus Curiae Avitus Group and in support of Jim Palmer Trucking in Ramsbacher v. Jim Palmer Trucking, DA 17-0502.  The district court held Ramsbacher’s claim against the trucking company was barred by workers compensation exclusivity and Ramsbacher appealed on ground the trucking company used a Professional Employer Association and was therefore not entitled to exclusivity.  Ramsbacher argued the Montana professional employer association statutes violate Article II, Section 16 of the Montana Constitution by depriving an injured worker of full legal redress.
