This Petition for Review from the May 23, 1994 Finding and Award of the Commissioner acting for the Fourth District was heard March 24, 1995 before a Compensation Review Board panel consisting of the Commission Chairman Jesse M. Frankl and Commissioners Roberta Smith D’Oyen and Amado J. Vargas .
JESSE M. FRANKL, CHAIRMAN. The respondent employer timely petitioned for review from the Fourth District Commissioner’s May 23, 1994 Finding and Award. The employer has failed to file its reasons of appeal, a brief, or a motion to correct. Moreover, the employer did not appear at oral argument before this Board.
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 Perkins v. Rudy Fogg & Son, 12 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 241,1697 CRB-2-93-4 (March 28, 1994); Divita v. Thames Valley Steel, 12 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev.
