State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
September 29, 2011
IN THE MATTER OF MICHAEL JONES, PETITIONER,
ALBERT PRACK, AS DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL HOUSING AND INMATE DISCIPLINARY PROGRAMS, RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
Calendar Date: July 27, 2011
Before: Mercure, J.P., Lahtinen, Malone Jr., Kavanagh 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 the Commissioner of Correctional Services which found petitioner guilty of violating certain prison disciplinary rule.
Petitioner, a prison inmate, commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding to challenge a disciplinary determination finding him guilty of rioting, making threats, making false statements and impersonation. The Attorney General has advised this Court that, since the commencement of this proceeding, the determination has been administratively reversed and all references thereto have been expunged from petitioner's institutional record. Accordingly, this matter has been rendered moot as petitioner has received all the relief to which he is entitled (see Matter of Walker v Fischer, 84 AD3d 1659 ; Matter of Miranda v Bezio, 84 AD3d 1661 ).
Mercure, J.P., Lahtinen, Malone Jr., Kavanagh and Garry, JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
Robert D. Mayberger Clerk of the Court
