After a California utility worker saw his $200,000 in company stock plummet in value, he left work and filed a workers' comp claim, citing stress. The state workers' comp board said he was entitled to benefits, but a court said "No way," ruling that his stock losses (and resulting stress) were no different from what the public experienced. (Pacific Gas & Electric Co. v. Workers' Comp Appeals Board, No. A101872, Cal. App.1)
