JESSE M. FRANKL, CHAIRMAN. The claimant filed a Petition for Review from the March 31, 1994 Finding and Dismissal of the Commissioner acting for the Seventh District. No other papers in support of claimant’s appeal were filed.1 The respondents filed a Motion To Dismiss dated December 13, 1994 and received December 19, 1994 which sought dismissal of the appeal pursuant to Practice Book § 4055. In its Motion To Dismiss respondents noted that no Reasons of Appeal, Motion To Correct nor any motions for extension of time were filed by the claimant. We agreed and granted the respondents’ Motion To Dismiss in a ruling announced from the bench on February 24, 1995. See e.g., Burke v. Abacus Transfer & Storage, 13 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev.
