ROBERT DENNISON, CHAIRMAN, NEW YORK STATE DIVISION OF PAROLE, RESPONDENT-RESPONDENT.
Appeal from a judgment (denominated order) of the Supreme Court, Wayne County (John B. Nesbitt, A.J.), entered October 11, 2007 in a habeas corpus proceeding. The judgment dismissed the petition.

This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
PRESENT: MARTOCHE, J.P., FAHEY, GREEN, AND PINE, JJ.
It is hereby ORDERED that said appeal is unanimously dismissed without costs.
This appeal by petitioner from a judgment dismissing his petition seeking a writ of habeas corpus has been rendered moot by his release to parole supervision (see People ex rel. Limmer v McKinney, 23 AD3d 806). Contrary to petitioner's contention, the exception to the mootness doctrine does not apply here (see id.; People ex rel. Alexander v Walsh, 303 AD2d 1015, lv denied 100 NY2d 505; see generally Matter of Hearst Corp. v Clyne, 50 NY2d 707, 714-715).
