Janzen v. Workers' Comp. Appeals Bd No. C024918 MASTER BRIEF Facts : The workers’ compensation judge found as facts that the deceased was a resident of California at the time of his death and all evidence points to an agreement for employment being made in a phone conversation between [the deceased] and Curtis on or about June 14, 1986. On reconsideration, the Board erroneously upheld the finding it had no subject matter jurisdiction. Subject matter jurisdiction is established here by virtue of the deceased’s resident status and the fact the employment contract was entered into in California. Issue: Petitioner, Stephanie Janzen, seeks review of an order of the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board (Board) dismissing her application for death benefits. Petitioner's father, Stanley Janzen (the deceased), a California resident, was killed in an airplane crash while working in Wyoming as a pilot for a Wyoming employer. The Board concluded it lacked jurisdiction to award death benefits. We shall reverse.
