Nebraska Court of Appeals allows injured worker who was illegal alien to collect temporary total disability from worker compensation case. But because there was "no evidence the plaintiff intended to remain in the country as an unauthorized alien" the trial court's ruling that the plaintiff would be ineligible for vocational rehabilitation services was premature. Visoso v. Cargill Meat Solutions, A-09-339, 18 Neb. App. 202. The injured worker's work status is not involved in the definition of “alien.”
