Brett v. Pratt & Whitney

CASE NO. 4137 CRB-01-99-10

COMPENSATION REVIEW BOARD

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION COMMISSION

OCTOBER 29, 1999

MARK BRETT

CLAIMANT-APPELLANT

v.

PRATT & WHITNEY

EMPLOYER

and

CIGNA

INSURER

RESPONDENTS-APPELLEES

DISMISSAL ORDER

Claimant-Appellant, acting on his own behalf, filed a Petition for Review October 25, 1999 from the October 13, 1999 Finding and Dismissal of the Commissioner acting for the First District. The trial commissioner found claimant failed to sustain his burden of proof establishing a violation of § 31-290a and therefore claimant’s claim was dismissed.

Sec. 31-290a allows a party to appeal a trier’s § 31-290a decision. However, the Compensation Review Board lacks jurisdiction over such appeals. Jurisdiction over such appeals lies with the Appellate Court. Therefore, claimant’s appeal must be dismissed. See Young v. SVG Lithography Systems, Inc., 3927 CRB-07-97-11 (Nov. 18,1998); Czekala v. United Technologies Corp./Sikorsky Aircraft Div., 15 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 287, 3325 CRB-4-96-4 (June 20, 1996); Rondini v. Tectonic Industries, 10 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 210, 1231 CRD-6-91-4 (Dec. 4, 1992).
