workers's comp cases and is not connected with this case. she said they must have thought the case through very carefully because more public scrutiny lies ahead. >> filing a psychiatric claim not easy. they give up their rights to privacy, your whole life is an open book. >> the department of industrial relations will look at the claim august 13th. if no settlement is reached, his case will move forward to trial or move on for further hearing. organizers are already planning a demonstration outside the state building in the hopes of swaying the panel to reject the former cop's claim. >> this is outrageous. while he might be entitled to receive worker's compensation, the idea that his own actions of brutality would entitle him to a payout is absolutely unjust. it's crazy. >> pike made nearly $122,000 a year. brown, the worker's comp attorney, says because of recent cutbacks made by the legislature, a 50% permanent disability, for instance, would entitle pike to $62,000 in life time cash benefits, but medical treatment for life.
