July 18, 2006.
Appeal from the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission.
Gerald L. Gray; Brian K. Patton; Gerald Gray Law Firm, A Professional Corporation, on briefs, for appellant.
Kerry S. Hay; Lee Phipps, P.C., on brief, for appellee.
Present: Judges Elder, Beales and Senior Judge Willis.
Pursuant to Code § 17.1-413, this opinion is not designated for publication.
Stephen Ostrander t/a Hard Time Logging (employer) appeals a decision of the Workers' Compensation Commission finding that (1) Freddie Fuller, Jr. proved he sustained an injury by accident arising out of and in the course of his employment on September 20, 2004; and (2) employer had two or more employees regularly in service, and thus was an "employer" subject to the Workers' Compensation Act. We have reviewed the record and the commission's opinion and find that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the commission in its final opinion. See Fuller v. Stephen Ostrander t/a Hard Time Logging, VWC File No. 221-48-20 (Jan. 24, 2006). We dispense with oral argument and summarily affirm because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process. See Code § 17.1-403; Rule 5A:27.
