IWCC Announces New Arbitrator Assignments
Effective November 1, Arbitrator Stephen Friedman will take over the Chicago call formerly handled by Arbitrator Kelmanson, and Arbitrator Michael Nowak will take over the Collinsville/Belleville call formerly handled by Arbitrator Zanotti.
The IWCC is creating new Chicago calls for Arbitrators Bocanegra and Fruth that will take effect January 1, 2015. Because cases are continued for 90 days at a time, some cases are now being reassigned for the January calls. According to the IWCC, their computer database may show the new arbitrator, but until January 1 the current arbitrator retains jurisdiction.
