HARTFORD INSURANCE GROUP
The claimant was represented by A. A. Washton, Esq., Washton, Segal & Rotella, 190 Broad Street, New London, CT 06320, who neither submitted a brief nor appeared at oral argument.
The respondents were represented by Jason M. Dodge, Esq., Pomeranz, Drayton & Stabnick, 95 Glastonbury Boulevard, Glastonbury, CT 06033-4412.
This Petition for Review from the March 30, 1993 Ruling on Notice of Intention to Discontinue Payments (Form 36) of the Commissioner for the Second District was heard October 29, 1993 before a Compensation Review Board panel consisting of the Commission Chairman Jesse Frankl and Commissioners George A. Waldron and Donald H. Doyle, Jr.
JESSE FRANKL, CHAIRMAN. The claimant timely petitioned for review from the Second District Commissioner’s March 30, 1993 Ruling on Notice of Intention to Discontinue Payments (Form 36). He failed to file his Reasons of Appeal. On May 12, 1993, the respondents moved to dismiss the appeal based on the claimant’s alleged failure to file a timely appeal and the claimant’s failure to file his Reasons of Appeal in a timely fashion.
This appeal was calendared to be heard by the Board on October 29, 1993, on the issue of whether it should be dismissed as a late appeal and whether it should be dismissed for failure to prosecute. Notwithstanding an extension of time granted until August 30, 1993, no brief was filed by the claimant. The claimant failed to appear at oral argument.
As the claimant has not filed Reasons of Appeal, appeared or submitted a brief, we must dismiss this appeal for failure to prosecute with due diligence. See Practice Book Sec. 4055; Sinkowski v. Continental Auto, 1398 CRB-8-92-3 (decided November 9, 1993). Jones v. Middletown Manufacturing, 11 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 56, 1296 CRD-8-91-9 (1993); Smith v. City of New Haven, 10 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 93, 1154 CRD-3-90-12 (1992); Lauriano v. Reliance Automotive, 9 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 96, 934 CRD-8-89-11 (1991).
Commissioners George A. Waldron and Donald H. Doyle, Jr. concur.
