State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
January 20, 2011
IN THE MATTER OF CHRIS HYNES, PETITIONER,
BRIAN FISCHER, AS COMMISSIONER OF CORRECTIONAL SERVICES, RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
Calendar Date: November 29, 2010
Before: Cardona, P.J., Peters, Rose, Malone Jr. 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 commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding challenging a determination finding him guilty of violating a prison disciplinary rule. The Attorney General has advised this Court that the determination at issue has since been administratively reversed and all references thereto have been expunged from petitioner's institutional record. In view of this, and given that petitioner has received all the relief to which he is entitled, the matter is dismissed as moot (see Matter of Townsley v Lempke, 74 AD3d 1661 ; Matter of Kalwasinski v Kelly, 74 AD3d 1671 ).
Cardona, P.J., Peters, Rose, Malone Jr. and Garry, JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs, but with disbursements in the amount of $40.70.
Robert D. Mayberger Clerk of the Court
