Employment: Workers’ Compensation-Weight of the Evidence

Claimant appealed from the denial of his workers’ compensation claim, challenging the compensation judge’s credibility determinations and weight of the evidence. The administrative law judge expressly found that claimant was not a credible witness and that his medical expert was not as persuasive as employer’s expert.

Where determination of the credibility and weight of medical experts was within the sole discretion of the compensation judge, the court had no basis to review the denial of claimant’s claim for workers’ compensation benefits.

Judgment is affirmed.
