SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, SECOND DEPARTMENT
May 19, 1969
IN THE MATTER OF RICHARD V. PROVERB, APPELLANT,
JOHN R. NIESLEY ET AL., CONSTITUTING THE NASSAU COUNTY CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION, RESPONDENTS
In a proceeding pursuant to article 78 of the CPLR to direct respondents to entertain petitioner's appeal from a determination of the Nassau County Acting Police Commissioner, disciplining petitioner for violation of departmental regulations, petitioner appeals from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Nassau County, dated July 15, 1965, which dismissed the petition.
Christ, Acting P. J., Brennan, Rabin, Hopkins and Kleinfeld, JJ., concur.
Petitioner had the right to elect to appeal to respondents (Civil Service Law, §§ 76, 2). The reference in subdivision d of section 8-13.0 of the Nassau County Administrative Code (L. 1939, chs. 272, 701-709, as amd. by L. 1948, ch. 436) to "A petition to review a determination" does not constitute a limitation to a proceeding under article 78 of the CPLR.
Judgment reversed, on the law, with $10 costs and disbursements, and respondents are directed to hear and determine petitioner's appeal from the determination of the Acting Commissioner on the merits.
