Price v. Stevedoring Servs. of Am., No. 08-71719

By FindLaw Staff on December 16, 2010 5:53 PM

Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act Benefits Act

In Price v. Stevedoring Servs. of Am., No. 08-71719, an action seeking disability benefits under the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA), the court affirmed the Department of Labor Benefits Review Board's order affirming the ALJ's decision to award simple interest at the rate determined by 28 U.S.C. section 1961(a), where interest on past due disability payments under the LHWCA was properly calculated as simple interest at the rate defined in section 1961(a).

 

As the court wrote:  "Interest on past due disability payments under the Long-shore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act ("LHWCA" or "Act"), 33 US.C. § 901 et seq., is properly calculated as simple interest at the rate defined in 28 U.S.C. § 1961(a)."
