SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, SECOND DEPARTMENT
December 22, 1969
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
LLOYD DENSON, APPELLANT
In a coram nobisproceeding to vacate a judgment of the former County Court, Kings County, rendered November 9, 1961, convicting defendant of robbery in the first degree, grand larceny in the first degree and assault in the second degree, defendant appeals from an order of the Supreme Court, Kings County, dated November 12, 1968, which denied the application without a hearing.
Christ, Acting P. J., Brennan, Rabin, Hopkins and Munder, JJ., concur.
Defendant had made a prior application for the same relief on essentially the same grounds asserted in the instant application. The prior application was denied and that denial was affirmed by this court on October 17, 1966 (People v. Denson, 26 A.D.2d 910). There were no additional or new facts presented on the instant application warranting the granting of the relief sought by defendant (cf. People v. Sullivan, 4 N.Y.2d 472, 474; People v. Blake, 15 A.D.2d 925). Moreover, under the circumstances of this case and in the light of the record herein, even if it could be assumed that new or additional facts or contentions were made by defendant on this second coram nobis application, the Justice at Criminal Term properly exercised his discretion in denying the application (cf. People v. Sullivan, supra ; People v. Mazzella, 13 N.Y.2d 997).
The judgment was unanimously affirmed by this court ( People v. Denson , 18 A.D.2d 1137); leave to appeal to the Court of Appeals was denied on April 22, 1963; and the Supreme Court of the United States denied certiorari on October 14, 1963 ( Denson v. New York , 375 U.S. 851). Order affirmed.
