State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
December 6, 2012
IN THE MATTER OF JOHN SANTIAGO, PETITIONER,
BRIAN FISCHER, AS COMMISSIONER OF CORRECTIONS AND COMMUNITY SUPERVISION, RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
Calendar Date: October 29, 2012
Before: Peters, P.J., Lahtinen, Spain, Stein and Egan Jr., JJ.
Proceeding pursuant to CPLR article 78 (transferred to this Court by order of Supreme Court, entered in Albany County) to review a determination of respondent which found petitioner guilty of violating a prison disciplinary rule.
Petitioner commenced this proceeding after he was found guilty of violating the prison disciplinary rule prohibiting lewd conduct. 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 mandatory surcharge has been refunded to petitioner's 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 Samuels v Fischer, 98 AD3d 760, 760 ; Matter of Doyle v Fischer, 87 AD3d 1189, 1189 ).
Peters, P.J., Lahtinen, Spain, Stein and Egan Jr., JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
Robert D. Mayberger Clerk of the Court
