DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
The appellant's contention that a federal detention warrant compelling him to remain in custody has lapsed is based upon material dehors the record (see People ex rel. Roache v Connell, 31 AD3d 1199). Moreover, habeas corpus is an inappropriate remedy for addressing the appellant's other contention that a good time allowance was improperly withheld from him (see People ex rel. Barnes v Allard, 25 AD3d 893, 894; People ex rel. Richardson v West, 24 AD3d 996, 997). Accordingly, the appellant failed to establish that he would be entitled to an immediate release from custody if a writ of habeas corpus were granted (see People ex rel. Kaplan v Commissioner of Correction of City of N.Y., 60 NY2d 648; People ex rel. DeFlumer v Strack, 212 AD2d 555).
RIVERA, J.P., DILLON, LEVENTHAL and CHAMBERS, JJ., concur.
