New ECAB Judge appointed

I learned this afternoon that Iowa workers compensation commissioner Christopher Godfrey has been appointed to be Chief Judge of the Employees Compensation Appeals Board ("ECAB") starting on August 25, 2014. This is a critical position for OWCP claimants as ECAB is the highest level of review in a FECA claim for someone who has received an  unfavorable decision from OWCP. He is considered a friend of the working person and FECA claimants should be relieved that someone with Mr. Godfrey's qualifications has been appointed to this position.
