Disregarding Witness Testimony Without Explaining Why

In Treon v. Unemployment Comp. Bd. of Review, 499 Pa. 455, 453 A.2d 960 (1982), the Board, on appeal, disregarded the uncontradicted evidence of the only witness who testified without explaining why it did so. There, our Supreme Court stated that the Board's fact finding power is not unlimited and held that where the Referee's findings are based on consistent and uncontradicted evidence, the Board is not free to disregard those findings without stating its reasons for doing so. Id. at 461, 453 A.2d at 962.
