The claimant appeared pro se at the trial level; however, failed to appear at oral argument before the Compensation Review Board. No brief was filed in the instant appeal.
The respondents failed to appear at the trial level and at oral argument before the Compensation Review Board. No brief was filed in the instant appeal.
This Petition for Review from the May 18, 1992 Finding and Award of the Commissioner for the Eighth District was heard April 16, 1993 before a Compensation Review Board panel consisting of the Commission Chairman, Jesse Frankl and Commissioners George Waldron and Donald H. Doyle.
JESSE FRANKL, CHAIRMAN. The claimant appealed the Commissioner of the Eighth District’s May 18, 1992 Finding and Award in which the claimant was awarded benefits for scarring and/or disfigurement. The appeal was received on June 1, 1992. Section 31-301(a) clearly provides the time in which an appeal must be taken. Claimant did not comply with the statutorily mandated time requirements for filing her Petition for Review; we therefore lack jurisdiction over the late filed appeal. See e.g. Crochiere v. Enfield Board of Education, 10 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 165, 1069 CRD-1-90-7 (1992); Svarplaitis v. Kimberly Clark Corporation, 10 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 124, 1264 CRD-7-91-7 (1992); Corona v. Uniroyal Chemical, Inc., 9 Conn. Workers’ Comp. Rev. Op. 105, 987 CRD-5-90-3 (1991).
In addition, we note that no Reasons of Appeal or brief was filed by the claimant-appellant. We therefore dismiss for failure to prosecute. See Practice Book Sec. 4005.
Commissioners George Waldron and Donald H. Doyle concur.
