State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
June 24, 2010
IN THE MATTER OF TAYDEN TOWNSLEY, PETITIONER,
JOHN P. LEMPKE, AS SUPERINTENDENT OF FIVE POINTS CORRECTIONAL FACILITY, RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
Calendar Date: May 12, 2010
Before: Mercure, J.P., Rose, Kavanagh, 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 prison disciplinary rule.
Petitioner, a prison inmate, was found guilty of violating program committee procedures following a tier II disciplinary hearing. The Attorney General has informed this Court that the determination has been reversed administratively and all references thereto have been expunged from petitioner's institutional record. As a result, petitioner has received all the relief to which he is entitled and this matter is therefore dismissed as moot (see Matter of Mercer v Artus, 70 AD3d 1073 ; Matter of Burse v Bezio, 69 AD3d 1068 ).
Mercure, J.P., Rose, Kavanagh, Stein and Garry, JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
