Southern New England Telephone Co. v. Dep't. of Public Utility Control
In Southern New England Telephone Co. v. Dep't. of Public Utility Control, 64 Conn. App. 134, 138, 779 A.2d 817, appeal dismissed, 260 Conn. 180, 799 A.2d 294 (2002) the agency appeal provision was applicable to "'any order, authorization or decision of the Department of Public Utility Control . . . .'" Although some of the orders, authorizations and decisions to which the appeal provision applied were appealable because they satisfied the final decision requirement of 4-183, others did not satisfy that requirement and, therefore, could never be appealed.
Although the court construed the relationship between the agency appeal provision and the requirements of 4-183, the court did not suggest that the nature of the statutory scheme rendered the appeal provision meaningless with respect to those orders, authorizations and decisions that could not satisfy the final decision requirement.
