JESSE M. FRANKL, CHAIRMAN. The respondent employer Richard Auto Transport has filed a petition for review from the Third District Commissioner’s June 29, 1995 Finding and Award. The employer has failed to file reasons of appeal, a motion to correct, or a brief. In addition, the employer did not appear at oral argument before this Board.
As the employer has neglected to actively pursue its appeal, we dismiss the employer’s appeal for failure to prosecute with proper diligence pursuant to Practice Book § 4055. See Milardo v. Shuck Petroleum, 11 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 279, 1559 CRB-8-92-11 (Nov. 22, 1993); Divita v. Thames Valley Steel, 12 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev.
