DISMISSAL

JESSE M. FRANKL, CHAIRMAN. The employer has filed a petition for review from the Third District Commissioner’s January 12, 1995 Supplemental Finding and Award. The employer has failed to file reasons of appeal, a motion to correct, or a brief.

As the employer has neglected to actively pursue its appeal, pursuant to a bench ruling we dismissed the employer’s appeal for failure to prosecute with proper diligence pursuant to Practice Book § 4055. See Divita v. Thames Valley Steel, 12 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 50, 1541 CRB-2-92-10 (Jan. 26, 1994); Milardo v. Shuck Petroleum, 11 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev.
