IN THE MATTER OF JASON SHERMAN, PETITIONER,
THOMAS LAVALLEY, AS SUPERINTENDENT OF CLINTON CORRECTIONAL FACILITY, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
Calendar Date: September 28, 2011
Before: Peters, J.P., Spain, Lahtinen, Stein and McCarthy, JJ.
Proceeding pursuant to CPLR article 78 (transferred to this Court by order of the Supreme Court, entered in Clinton County) to review a determination of respondent Superintendent of Clinton Correctional Facility which found petitioner guilty of violating certain prison disciplinary rules.
Petitioner commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding to challenge a prison disciplinary determination, following a tier II disciplinary hearing, finding him guilty of harassment, misuse of state property and refusing a direct order. 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 mandatory surcharge has been credited back to his inmate account.
Inasmuch as petitioner has received all the relief to which he is entitled, the matter must be dismissed as moot (see Matter of Valdez v Fischer, 85 AD3d 1264, 1265 ; Matter of Rogers v Fischer, 81 AD3d 1025, 1025 ).
Peters, J.P., Spain, Lahtinen, Stein and McCarthy, JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
