JESSE M. FRANKL, CHAIRMAN. The claimant has filed a timely petition for review from the Seventh District Commissioner’s September 22, 1994 Finding and Award of Compensation. However, the claimant has failed to file his reasons for appeal or a brief, and the claimant failed to appear at oral argument before this board.
As the claimant 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.

The claimant’s appeal is dismissed.
Commissioners Roberta Smith Tracy and Amado J. Vargas concur.
