By letter dated October 7, 2003, claimant and employer informed the Board that the parties have reached a compromise settlement in this matter and requested that this case be remanded.

Section 8(i)(1), of the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, 33 U.S.C. '908(i)(1), provides for the approval of such settlements by the administrative law judge. Accordingly, consistent with this Section, the Board grants the motion, dismisses employer's appeal, and remands this case to the Office of Administrative Law Judges for further appropriate action.

In the event the proposed settlement is not approved and the petitioner wishes review of the merits of this appeal, the Board will reinstate the appeal at the request of the petitioner. 33 U.S.C. '921(b)(4), 20 C.F.R. '802.405(a).
