Whether a high school math teacher, who volunteered to chaperone a high school ski club ski trip and who was injured while supervising student skiers on the slopes, was entitled to workers' compensation benefits for a "personal injury" within the meaning of G. L. c. 152, § 1(7A).
Interested parties may file their briefs in the Office of the Clerk for the Commonwealth, John Adams Courthouse, Suite 1-400, Pemberton Square, Boston MA 02108-1724 (Telephone 617-557-1020).
