AGNES MULROY

CLAIMANT-APPELLEE

v.

BECTON DICKINSON

EMPLOYER

and

TRAVELERS INSURANCE CO.

INSURER

RESPONDENTS-APPELLANTS

RULING ON MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION

JESSE M. FRANKL, CHAIRMAN. The claimant filed a Motion for Reconsideration on September 20, 1996 in response to the September 6, 1996 decision of the Compensation Review Board dismissing the respondents’ appeal. In that motion, she seeks an award of interest pursuant to § 31-301c(b) C.G.S, which provides that an employer or insurer who loses its appeal from a commissioner’s award must pay interest on the valid amount of the award not paid to the claimant during the pendency of the appeal. The respondents indeed lost their appeal from the trial commissioner’s award. Therefore, insofar as they have not paid the claimant the sums due in her award, the respondents are ordered to pay interest on those sums from their due dates through the date of this ruling at the rate prescribed in § 37-3a C.G.S.

Commissioners George A. Waldron and Robin L. Wilson concur.
