Decision

This claim was called for a calendar call on April 5, 2005 held in and for the Binghamton District.

This claim was filed with the Clerk of the Court on July 2, 1999. The State's Verified Answer was filed on August 30, 1999. On March 29, 2004 this claim was scheduled for a Not In Custody Calendar Call in Albany, New York. Claimant indicated in writing that he wished to continue with his claim. The matter was then transferred to the calendar of the Hon. Ferris D. Lebous.


On January 28, 2005, the court notified both parties in writing that this claim was scheduled for a calendar call on April 5, 2005. Additionally, the court's letter advised claimant that the failure to appear at the calendar call may result in the dismissal of his claim.


The State appeared at the aforementioned calendar call by Geoffrey B. Rossi, AAG who informed the court that it was ready to proceed. Claimant failed to appear.


In light of the foregoing, Claim No. 100646 is hereby DISMISSED pursuant to the Uniform Rules for the Court of Claims (22 NYCRR) § 206.10 (g).
