DISMISSAL ORDER

JESSE M. FRANKL, CHAIRMAN. The claimant timely petitioned for review from the Sixth District Commissioner’s November 22, 1994 Finding and Award. To date, the claimant has failed to file her reasons for appeal, a brief, or a motion to correct. Moreover, the claimant did not appear at oral argument before this board on September 22, 1995.

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, 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 (Jan. 26, 1994); Hargatai v. Copy Data, Inc., 11 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 106, 107, 1475 CRB-4-92-7 (June 2, 1993); Jones v. Middletown Mfg., 11 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 56, 57, 1296 CRD-8-91-9 (April 5, 1993).

Accordingly, the claimant’s appeal is dismissed.

Commissioners Roberta Smith Tracy and Amado J. Vargas concur.
