The respondents were represented by MaryAnn Wallace, Esq., Morrison, Mahoney & Miller, 100 Pearl St., Hartford, CT 06103.
This Petition for Review from the April 12, 2000 Finding and Dismissal of the Commissioner acting for the Fourth District was heard January 26, 2001 before a Compensation Review Board panel consisting of the Commission Chairman John A. Mastropietro and Commissioners George A. Waldron and Ernie R. Walker.
JOHN A. MASTROPIETRO, CHAIRMAN. The pro se claimant has filed a petitioned for review from the April 12, 2000 Finding and Dismissal of the Commissioner acting for the Fourth District. To date, he has failed to file reasons of appeal as per Admin. Reg. § 31-301-2, a motion to correct pursuant to Admin. Reg. § 31-301-4, or a brief in support of his appeal. In addition, the claimant did not appear at oral argument before this board. Without any further input from the claimant, we have no knowledge of either the grounds for his appeal or the reasons why he has not taken any of the steps necessary to establish his claims of error.
This case cannot be allowed to remain open indefinitely, as all parties have the right to a speedy resolution of their liabilities and their rights. Thus, the consequences of the claimant’s inaction are clear. As he has neglected to actively pursue his appeal, we hereby dismiss his petition for review 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/DMR Region 2, 16 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 137, 2183 CRB-6-94-10 (Nov. 27, 1996).
Commissioners George A. Waldron and Ernie R. Walker concur.
