MONTANA STATE FUND.
Summary: Claimant appeals the order by the DLI denying his request for interim TTD benefits under § 39-71-610, MCA.

Held: Claimant does not qualify for interim TTD benefits under § 39-71-610, MCA, because he continues to receive biweekly compensation benefits.
Judgement: Petitioner’s request for additional biweekly benefits under § 39-71-610, MCA, is DENIED.
Appealed to Supreme Court, and Dismissed on appeal by stipulation. 10/13/2016
