State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
November 10, 2011
IN THE MATTER OF VINCENT VANNESS, APPELLANT,
BRIAN FISCHER, AS COMMISSIONER OF CORRECTIONS AND COMMUNITY SUPERVISION, RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Calendar Date: September 28, 2011
Before: Peters, J.P., Rose, Malone Jr., Stein and Garry, JJ.
Appeal from a judgment of the Supreme Court (Platkin, J.), entered August 13, 2010 in Albany County, which dismissed petitioner's application, in a proceeding pursuant to CPLR article 78, to review a determination of respondent finding petitioner guilty of violating a prison disciplinary rule.
Petitioner commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding to challenge a determination rendered after a tier III disciplinary hearing finding him guilty of possessing a weapon. Supreme Court dismissed the petition and petitioner now appeals. The Attorney General has informed this Court that the determination at issue has been administratively reversed, all references thereto have been expunged from petitioner's institutional record and the $5 mandatory surcharge has been returned to his inmate account. As a result, petitioner has received all the relief to which he is entitled and the matter is dismissed as moot (see Matter of Edmonson v Fisher, 79 AD3d 1547 ; Matter of Hanson v Bezio, 79 AD3d 1569 ).
Peters, J.P., Rose, Malone Jr., Stein and Garry, JJ., concur.
ORDERED that the appeal is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
Robert D. Mayberger Clerk of the Court
