- Employee: Paul DaSilva
- Employer: Palladino Landscaping
- Insurer: Savers Property and Casualty Ins. Co.
COSTIGAN, J. By decision filed on October 29,2008, the administrative judge awarded § 36 specific compensation benefits, but denied and dismissed the employee's claim for § 8(5)2 penalties for the insurer's alleged illegal terminations of weekly benefits. By D.I.A. Form 112 received on November 14, 2008, Attorney James N. Ellis purported to file an appeal from that decision on behalf of the employee.3 The employee, however, had died some fourteen months prior, and counsel no longer had a client. We need not address the merits of the arguments advanced. For the reasons that follow, we reverse the decision, vacate its awards and dismiss the appeal for lack of standing.
