Court of Appeals Published Opinion AFFIRMING Russell Cir. Ct.
ACREE, JUDGE: The issue we must decide in this case is whether the Russell Circuit Court erred in granting summary judgment in favor of Bobby Dunbar, the Russell County Jailer, and his deputies who were on duty when Peggy McWhorter was admitted to the Russell County Detention Center and died of an overdose due to drugs she had ingested prior to her reporting to the detention center. We hold the circuit court did not err and therefore affirm.

Caring People Services LLC v. Gray
COA Not to Be Published Opinion AFFIRMING WCB
JONES, JUDGE: This appeal arises out of an opinion issued by Kentucky’s Workers’ Compensation Board (“Board”) affirming an award of benefits to the Appellee, Mary Gray. The Appellant, Caring People Service, LLC (“Caring People”), contends that the Board erred because Gray’s injury occurred while she was in her personal vehicle during her commute from her home to her regular worksite, and therefore, is not work-related. Having reviewed the record in conjunction with the applicable legal authorities, we affirm.
