A federal judge sided with a Maryland contractor in its request to order a plaintiff to undergo a neuropsychological examination to assess whether her subjective complaints are exaggerated or caused by an underlying psychological condition following a workplace accident.

The plaintiff, Jessica Rich, is seeking damages from her employer, Diana Consulting & Services LLC, doing business as Servicon Facilities & Mechanical Services, after a power drill struck her in the head while an employee was conducting repairs on the HVAC system, according to the opinion filed on April 29.
