MATTER WILBERT W. HAYWARD v. ARTHUR CORNELIUS (07/22/68)

SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, THIRD DEPARTMENT


July 22, 1968

IN THE MATTER OF WILBERT W. HAYWARD, RESPONDENT,
v.
ARTHUR CORNELIUS, JR., AS FORMER SUPERINTENDENT OF THE DIVISION OF STATE POLICE, APPELLANT

Gibson, P. J., Reynolds, Aulisi, Staley, Jr., and Gabrielli, JJ., concur in memorandum Per Curiam.

Author: Per Curiam

Appeal from a judgment of the Supreme Court which directed appellant to accord petitioner a hearing upon charges. Petitioner's two telephone messages constituted an "explanation" within the meaning of the Rules for the Classified Service (4 NYCRR 5.3 [d] ) and the question whether the explanation was true or false is not the issue now before us. (See Matter of Dunn v. Simon, 16 A.D.2d 719, 720, mot. for lv. to app. den. 11 N.Y.2d 646.) Petitioner took no cross appeal and cannot well complain that Special Term granted the alternative relief that he requested; nor can the appellant object, inasmuch as the relief granted was more favorable to him than the reinstatement with back pay to which petitioner was probably entitled (see Matter of Amkraut v. Hults, 21 A.D.2d 260, affd. 15 N.Y.2d 627). We do not, however, pass on the question of reinstatement nor on petitioner's right to apply or reapply to Special Term for relief of that nature.

Disposition

Judgment affirmed, with costs to respondent.
