IN THE MATTER OF SHIH-SIANG SHAWN LIAO, PETITIONER,
BRIAN FISCHER, AS COMMISSIONER OF CORRECTIONS AND COMMUNITY SUPERVISION, RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
Calendar Date: July 30, 2012
Before: Mercure, J.P., Rose, Spain, Stein 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, among other things, review a determination of respondent which found petitioner guilty of violating certain prison disciplinary rules.
Petitioner commenced the instant CPLR article 78 proceeding challenging, among other things, a tier III disciplinary determination finding him guilty of violating certain prison disciplinary rules. The Attorney General has advised this Court that the determination at issue has been administratively reversed, all references thereto have been expunged from petitioner's institutional record and the $5 mandatory surcharge has been refunded to petitioner's inmate account. We note that the tier II disciplinary determination that was also a subject of this proceeding has been annulled. Petitioner is not entitled to be restored to the status he enjoyed prior to the disciplinary determinations (see Matter of Garner v Bezio, 95 AD3d 1585, 1585 ; Matter of Abdul-Malik v Palin, 85 AD3d 1413 ). In view of this, and given that petitioner has received all the relief to which he is entitled, the matter must be dismissed as moot (see Matter of Torres v Bezio, 92 AD3d 1053 ; Matter of Calix v Brown, 92 AD3d 1001 ).
Mercure, J.P., Rose, Spain, Stein and Egan Jr., JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
