Calendar Date: October 22, 2013
Ivan Rippy, Auburn, petitioner pro se.
Eric T. Schneiderman, Attorney General, Albany (Peter H. Schiff of counsel), for respondent.
Before: Peters, P.J., Stein, Garry and Egan Jr., JJ.
MEMORANDUM AND JUDGMENT
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 respondent which found petitioner guilty of violating a prison disciplinary rule.
Petitioner, a prison inmate, commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding to challenge a tier III disciplinary determination finding him guilty of refusing a direct order. The Attorney General has informed this Court that, during the pendency of this proceeding, the determination at issue was administratively reversed, all references thereto were expunged from petitioner's institutional record and the $5 mandatory surcharge was 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 Hinton v Rock, 108 A.D.3d 981, 982 ; Matter of Jimenez v Fischer, 108 A.D.3d 958 ).
Peters, P.J., Stein, Garry and Egan Jr., JJ., concur.
ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
