IN THE MATTER OF MITCHELL KALWASINSKI, PETITIONER,
NORMAN R. BEZIO, AS DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL HOUSING AND INMATE DISCIPLINARY PROGRAMS, RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
Calendar Date: December 12, 2011
Before: Peters, J.P., Rose, Malone Jr., McCarthy and Egan Jr., 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 certain prison disciplinary rules.
Petitioner commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding to challenge a prison disciplinary determination finding him guilty of creating a disturbance, interfering with employees and refusing a direct order. The Attorney General has advised this Court that the disciplinary determination at issue has been administratively reversed, all references thereto expunged from petitioner's institutional record and the mandatory surcharge refunded to his inmate account. As such, petitioner has been afforded all the relief to which he is entitled and the petition must be dismissed as moot (see Matter of Doyle v Fischer, 87 AD3d 1189 ; Matter of Joseph v LaClair, 87 AD3d 780, 781 ).
Peters, J.P., Rose, Malone Jr., McCarthy and Egan Jr., JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
