DISMISSAL ORDER

JESSE M. FRANKL, CHAIRMAN. The employer timely petitioned for review from the Second District Commissioner’s November 30, 1993 Finding and Award Of Compensation. To date, the employer has failed to file his reasons for appeal, a brief, or a motion to correct.

As the employer has neglected to actively pursue his appeal, we must dismiss the appeal for failure to prosecute with proper diligence pursuant to Practice Book § 4055. See Burke v. Abacus Transfer & Storage, 1782 CRB-3-93-7 (Decided November 3, 1994); Perkins v. Rudy Fogg & Son, 1697 CRB-2-93-4 (Decided March 28, 1994); Divita v. Thames Valley Steel, 12 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 50, 1541 CRB-2-92-10 (1994); Hargatai v. Copy Data, Inc., 11 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 106, 107, 1475 CRB-4-92-7 (1993); Jones v. Middletown Mfg., 11 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 56, 57, 1296 CRD-8-91-9 (1993). We dismissed the employer’s appeal in a ruling announced from the bench by this panel at oral argument on January 13, 1995.

Commissioners Roberta S. D’Oyen and Amado J. Vargas concur.
