Decision

Ahmad Akbar's pro se Claim was filed in the Office of the Clerk of the Court on June 29, 2015. By letter dated June 24, 2019, the Court scheduled a trial of this matter to be held on November 15, 2019, with the parties at Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York, and the Judge at the Court of Claims located in Albany, New York.

At the beginning of the trial, the State made a motion to dismiss the Claim on the basis that Claimant failed to appear for trial and, thus, failed to prosecute the Claim.

A bench decision was rendered granting the State's motion to dismiss pursuant to Court of Claims Act 19(3) and Sections 206.6(f) and 206.15 of the Uniform Rules for the Court of Claims for the reasons set forth by the Court on the record, and it is

ORDERED that the Claim is dismissed.
