DISMISSAL ORDER

JESSE M. FRANKL, CHAIRMAN. The claimant has petitioned for review from the March 31, 1998 Finding and Award of Dismissal of the Commissioner acting for the Fifth District. The claimant has failed to file reasons of appeal, a motion to correct or a brief. In addition, the claimant did not appear at oral argument before this board.

As the claimant has neglected to actively pursue her appeal, we dismiss the appeal for failure to prosecute with proper diligence pursuant to Practice Book § 85-1. See Hyatt v. Ames Department Stores, Inc., 3533 CRB-6-97-2 (May 14, 1998); O’Connor v. United Parcel Service, 3124 CRB 4-95-7 (Dec. 18, 1996); Currin v. State of Connecticut/DMR Region 2, 16 Conn. Workers’ Comp.

The claimant’s appeal is thus dismissed.

Commissioners Michael S. Miles and Stephen B. Delaney concur.
