DECEMBER 16, 1997

MANUEL TORRES

CLAIMANT-APPELLEE

v.

UNITED ILLUMINATING

EMPLOYER

and

SEDGWICK JAMES, INC.

INSURER

RESPONDENT-APPELLANT

DISMISSAL ORDER

The respondent employer in the above named matter petitioned for review from the Commissioner acting for the Third District’s October 24, 1997 Order. In that Order, the Commissioner awarded the claimant benefits pursuant to Sec. 31-308a. As noted in that Order, the Commissioner’s decision was the result of an informal hearing. Consequently there is no record available for review. The Compensation Review Board is thus unable to engage in any meaningful review and therefore the matter is dismissed. See also; Reith v. Alpine Tree Care, 3556 CRB-7-97-3 (December 4, 1997), Ferguson v. State of Conn. 15 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 95, 3045 CRB-2-95-3 (Dec. 8, 1995), Eldridge v. Transport Drivers, 13 Conn.
