Original Proceeding in this Court

Attorneys: Michael L. Chieco, Sandy, Petitioner Pro Se

Lorin Blauer, Salt Lake City, for Respondent

-----

Before Judges Greenwood, Jackson, and Davis.

PER CURIAM:

This matter is before the court on a sua sponte motion for summary disposition to affirm the order below "on the basis that the grounds for review are so insubstantial as not to merit further consideration by the appellate court." Utah R. App. P. 10(a)(2).

Petitioner has not addressed the insubstantial grounds for review referred to in the motion. Instead, petitioner argues for an opportunity to participate in a hearing regarding the assessment of $618.00 for a penalty and overpayment of unemployment benefits. However, even though petitioner failed to appear for his first hearing, he did participate in a subsequent rescheduled hearing. Petitioner has failed to demonstrate that this appeal presents any issue meriting further proceedings or consideration by this court. See Utah R. App. P. 10(a)(2).

Accordingly, we grant the sua sponte motion for summary

disposition and affirm the order and judgment of the Workforce Appeals Board.
