WILSON, J. The third insurer, Pacific Indemnity, in this successive insurer case appeals from a decision assessing liability against it for the employee’s claim that her de Quervain’s tenosynovitis was causally related to her work as a small parts sorter. Because the judge mischaracterized the G. L. c. 152, § 11A, impartial physician’s causal relationship opinion, and relied upon that mischaracterization in reaching his conclusion, we reverse the decision.
