State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
March 25, 2010
IN THE MATTER OF THOMAS WILLIAMS, PETITIONER,
BRIAN FISCHER, AS COMMISSIONER OF CORRECTIONAL SERVICES, RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
Calendar Date: January 25, 2010
Before: Peters, J.P., Spain, Rose, Stein and McCarthy, JJ.
Proceeding pursuant to CPLR article 78 (transferred to this Court by order of the Supreme Court, entered in Clinton County) to review a determination of the Superintendent of Clinton Correctional Facility which found petitioner guilty of violating a prison disciplinary rule.
Petitioner commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding challenging a determination rendered after a tier II disciplinary hearing finding him guilty of violating a prison disciplinary rule. The Attorney General has advised this Court that the determination at issue has been administratively reversed and all references thereto have been expunged from petitioner's institutional record. Although petitioner also requested restoration to the status he enjoyed prior to the tier II disciplinary hearing, he has received all the relief to which he is entitled and, therefore, the matter must be dismissed as moot (see Matter of Bornstorff v Fischer, 67 AD3d 1138 ; Matter of Henriquez v Goord, 34 AD3d 962 ).
Peters, J.P., Spain, Rose, Stein and McCarthy, JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
