Decision

This is a claim by Injah E. Tafari (hereinafter "claimant”) to recover damages for lost or destroyed property by the State of New York (hereinafter “State”) on or about January 27, 2005 while claimant was incarcerated at Eastern Correctional Facility, Napanoch, New York.

Defendant moves to dismiss the claim[1] because it was not filed within one hundred and twenty days of claimant’s exhaustion of administrative remedies.

Claimant submits no opposition to the motion.

Accordingly, defendant’s motion is granted without opposition and the Clerk of the Court is directed to close the file.
