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 Commissioner of Corrections and Community Supervision finding petitioner guilty of violating certain prison disciplinary rules.

Buggsward v Rodriguez, 155 AD3d 1194, 1194-1195 [2017]).

ADJUDGED that the petition is dismissed, as moot, without costs.
