Final Decision FIC2013-493
In the Matter of a Complaint by
FINAL DECISION
Mark Dumas and the
Connecticut State Police Union,
     Complainant
     against
Docket #FIC 2013-493
Colonel Danny Stebbins,
State of Connecticut, Department
of Emergency Services and Public
Protection, Division of State Police;
and State of Connecticut, Department
of Emergency Services and Public
Protection, Division of State Police, 
     Respondents
May 14, 2014

     The above-captioned matter was scheduled to be heard as a contested case on March 19, 2014, at 11:00 A.M., however, neither the complainant nor the respondents appeared for the hearing.  For purposes of hearing, this matter was consolidated with Docket #FIC 2013-494; Mark Dumas and the Connecticut State Police Union v. Colonel Danny Stebbins, State of Connecticut, Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, Division of State Police; and State of Connecticut, Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, Division of State Police.
     The Commission notes that, on February 6, 2014, the complainant filed an unopposed motion to continue the contested case hearing originally scheduled for February 19, 2014, indicating that he wanted additional time to see if the parties could resolve the matters in this case without the need for a contested case hearing.  On February 6, 2014, the complainant’s motion was granted and the hearing was rescheduled to March 19, 2014.  It is quite possible that the complainant was able to resolve the matters in this case, and simply failed to notify the Commission that a hearing was no longer necessary. 
     The following order by the Commission is hereby recommended on the basis of the record concerning the above-captioned complaint:
     1.  The complaint is hereby dismissed.
Approved by Order of the Freedom of Information Commission at its regular meeting of May 14, 2014.
