State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
November 17, 2011
IN THE MATTER OF VERNON JACKSON, PETITIONER,
ALBERT PRACK, AS DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL HOUSING AND INMATE DISCIPLINARY PROGRAMS, RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
Calendar Date: September 28, 2011
Before: Mercure, J.P., Spain, Lahtinen, 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 Corrections and Community Supervision which found petitioner guilty of violating a prison disciplinary rule.
Petitioner commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding challenging a prison disciplinary determination. The Attorney General has advised this Court that the determination at issue has been administratively reversed and that all references thereto have been expunged from petitioner's institutional record. In view of this, and since petitioner has received all the relief to which he is entitled, the matter is now moot and the petition must be dismissed (see Matter of Kalwasinski v Fischer, 85 AD3d 1471, 1472 ; Matter of Miranda v Bezio, 84 AD3d 1661 ).
Mercure, J.P., Spain, Lahtinen, Kavanagh and Garry, JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
