NEW YORK SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FOURTH DEPARTMENT
March 26, 2010
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK EX REL. DERRICK MCPHERSON, RESPONDENT,
MELVIN WILLIAMS, SUPERINTENDENT, WILLARD DRUG TREATMENT CAMPUS, APPELLANT.
Appeal from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Seneca County (Dennis F. Bender, A.J.), dated February 2, 2009 in a habeas corpus proceeding. The judgment granted the petition and directed release of petitioner to parole supervision.
Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
As corrected through Wednesday, April 28, 2010
It is hereby ordered that said appeal is dismissed without costs.
Respondent appeals from a judgment granting the petition seeking a writ of habeas corpus and directing petitioner's release to parole supervision. During the pendency of this appeal, however, petitioner's parole was violated and petitioner is presently incarcerated. This appeal therefore has been rendered moot (see People ex rel. Maldonado v Williams, 67 AD3d 1328 ), and the exception to the mootness doctrine does not apply (cf. Lindsay v New York State Bd. of Parole, 48 NY2d 883 ; People ex rel. Frisbie v Hammock, 112 AD2d 721 ).
All concur except Hurlbutt, J.P., who is not participating.
Present---Hurlbutt, J. P., Martoche, Smith, Carni and Pine, JJ.
