[*1]In the Matter of JULIAN SILVA,


DONALD VENETTOZZI, as Acting Director of Special Housing and Inmate Disciplinary Programs, Respondent.

Calendar Date: May 8, 2018
Before: Garry, P.J., Egan Jr., Lynch, Mulvey and Pritzker, JJ.

Julian Silva, Ossining, petitioner pro se.

Barbara D. Underwood, Attorney General, Albany (Marcus J. Mastracco of counsel), for respondent.


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 finding petitioner guilty of violating certain prison disciplinary rules.

Petitioner commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding challenging a tier III 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. Inasmuch as petitioner has received all of the relief to which he is entitled, the petition must be dismissed as moot (see Matter of Walker v Annucci, 160 AD3d 1325, 1325-1326 [2018]; Matter of Houghtaling v Venettozzi, 160 AD3d 1309, 1309 [2018]). As the record reflects that petitioner paid a reduced filing fee of $15 and he has requested reimbursement thereof, we grant petitioner's request for that amount.

Garry, P.J., Egan Jr., Lynch, Mulvey and Pritzker, JJ., concur.

ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs, but with disbursements in the amount of $15.
