In the Matter of Jack Davis v. Brian Fischer

May 24, 2012

IN THE MATTER OF JACK DAVIS, APPELLANT,
v.
BRIAN FISCHER, AS COMMISSIONER OF CORRECTIONS AND COMMUNITY SUPERVISION, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.



Appeal from a judgment of the Supreme Court (Lynch, J.), entered May 23, 2011 in Albany County, which, in a proceeding pursuant to CPLR article 78, granted respondents' motion to dismiss the petition.

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

Calendar Date: April 4, 2012

Before: Peters, P.J., Mercure, Lahtinen, Kavanagh and Garry, JJ.

Petitioner attempted to commence this CPLR article 78 proceeding to challenge various prison disciplinary determinations made between 1989 and 2009. Respondents, in turn, moved to dismiss the petition based upon petitioner's failure to comply with the service requirements set forth in the order to show cause. Supreme Court granted the motion and this appeal ensued.

Absent personal jurisdiction over the parties, this Court is precluded from addressing the merits of the arguments in the petition (see Matter of Wilson v Bezio, 93 AD3d 1053, 1054 [2012]; Matter of Calhoun v Division of Parole, 93 AD3d 1009, 1009-1010 [2012]). Upon reviewing the record, we find no basis to disturb Supreme Court's conclusion that jurisdiction was lacking.

Peters, P.J., Mercure, Lahtinen, Kavanagh and Garry, JJ., concur.

ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs.
