State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
January 26, 2012
IN THE MATTER OF BRAD MCCASKELL, PETITIONER,
ALBERT PRACK, AS ACTING DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL HOUSING AND INMATE DISCIPLINARY PROGRAMS, RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
Calendar Date: December 12, 2011
Before: Spain, J.P., Malone Jr., Kavanagh, Garry 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 a prison disciplinary rule.
Petitioner, a prison inmate, commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding to challenge a prison disciplinary determination finding him guilty of drug use. The Attorney General has informed this Court that the determination at issue has been administratively reversed, references thereto expunged from petitioner's institutional record and the mandatory surcharge refunded to his inmate account. Inasmuch as petitioner has been afforded all the relief to which he is entitled, the petition must be dismissed as moot (see Matter of Doyle v Fischer, 87 AD3d 1189 ; Matter of Pereira v Fischer, 87 AD3d 1192 ).
Spain, J.P., Malone Jr., Kavanagh, Garry and Egan Jr., JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
