This Petition for Review from the June 26, 1990 Finding and Award of the Commissioner for the First District was heard April 26, 1991 before a Compensation Review Division panel consisting of the then Commission Chairman, John Arcudi and Commissioners John Arcudi, Gerald Kolinsky, and Angelo L. dos Santos.

OPINION

JOHN ARCUDI, COMMISSIONER. Respondent has appealed the First District June 26, 1990 Finding and Award. Appellant filed a Motion to Correct July 9, 1990. Shortly after June 26, 1990 the trier resigned his position as a Commissioner and he never ruled on respondent’s Motion to Correct.

As this matter is analogous to Schick v. Windsor Airmotive Division, 1033 CRD-1-90-6 (decided February 16, 1993) we must remand it for further proceedings as we did in Schick. See, Gavin v. City of New Britain, 1 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 151, 46 CRD-6-81 (1982) and Foley v. City of New Britain, 1 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 147, 47 CRD-6-81 (1982).

Commissioners Gerald Kolinsky and Angelo L. dos Santos concur.
