Decision

Claimant has petitioned the Court to designate his Church, mother, two daughters and
niece as beneficiaries of this claim.

The Court of Claims is a court of limited jurisdiction (see C.O. Falter v New York State Thruway Authority, Ct Cl, Claim No. 112934, Motion No. M -74905, UID #2008-015-054, [Collins, J., July 21, 2008]), and the Court’s research has uncovered no authority which would permit it to make the designations sought in the instant application. To the extent claimant is seeking to put his affairs in order, he is encouraged to seek other resources available to him to effectuate his wishes.

Accordingly, claimant’s motion M-75504 is hereby denied in its entirety.
