California Supreme Court
Roe v. Doe
John was successful in overturning the trial court case where the reviewing court held that employees have the freedom to select their own physician in cases involving industrial injuries, even if the employer has formed a Medical Provider Network.

If not, injured workers may treat with a doctor of their own choice at the employer’s expense.
