State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
September 24, 2009
IN THE MATTER OF NIGEL SMART, PETITIONER,
BRIAN FISCHER, AS COMMISSIONER OF CORRECTIONAL SERVICES, RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
Calendar Date: August 3, 2009
Before: Mercure, J.P., Rose, Kane, Stein and Garry, JJ.
Proceeding pursuant to CPLR article 78 (transferred to this Court by order of the Supreme Court, entered in Albany County) to review a determination of respondent which found petitioner guilty of violating a certain prison disciplinary rule.
Petitioner, a prison inmate, commenced this proceeding challenging a tier III disciplinary determination finding him guilty of "demonstration." The Attorney General has advised this Court that the administrative determination at issue has been reversed and all references thereto have been expunged from petitioner's institutional record. Accordingly, petitioner has received all the relief to which he is entitled and this matter is therefore moot (see Matter of Hart v Fischer, 60 AD3d 1226 ; Matter of York v Fischer, 55 AD3d 1096 ).
Mercure, J.P., Rose, Kane, Stein and Garry, JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
