1. The Board contacted counsel for employer via telephone with regards to the filing of employer's second notice of appeal. Rita Carroll, Esq., indicated that the second appeal was intended to be a duplicate of employer's initial appeal, BRB No. 03-836. Ms. Carroll indicated that the appeal erroneously identified the claimant as James Garland, rather than Janise Garland.
