    Broken hand ruling raises concerns - Chicago Tribune

    Iowa employers are raising concerns about a state administrative judge's decision to award worker's compensation and medical benefits to a part-time United Parcel Service employee who broke his hand when he lost his temper and hit a trailer.

    The damages were awarded by a state administrative law judge who acknowledged that the worker had not been truthful about how he broke his hand and was fired for destroying customer packages and creating a hostile work environment.

    Just another example of a judicial system that has lost its perspective.
