AUGUST 5, 2011

ROBERT MACBRIDE

CLAIMANT-APPELLEE

v.

CONNECTICUT ENERGY CORP.

and

LIBERTY MUTUAL INSURANCE

INSURER

RESPONDENTS-APPELLANTS

REMAND ORDER

Respondents have filed a Petition for Review from the trial commissioner’s Sec. 31-308a Order. The order is from an informal hearing; no record exists. Due process requires an evidentiary hearing where a record can be created. Absent a record this board cannot properly consider an appeal pursuant to Sec. 31-301(a). The appeal is therefore remanded to the trial commissioner acting for the Third District for a Formal Hearing or other appropriate action. See Petit v. Coca Cola Enterprises, 5660 CRB-1-11-6 (August 2, 2011).
