The trial of this claim was scheduled to be heard on May 10, 2019 via video-conferencing technology.
By letter dated February 27, 2019, the Court scheduled a trial of this pro se claim to be held on May 10, 2019. The letter, sent to claimant at his last known address, was returned to the Court. Claimant has failed to notify the Court of any change of address as required by 22 NYCRR § 206.6 (f). Claimant did not appear today for the scheduled trial nor did he contact the Court seeking an adjournment of the trial.
At the outset of trial, counsel for the State made a motion to dismiss the claim pursuant to 22 NYCRR § 206.15 for claimant's failure to appear for the scheduled trial.
The Court GRANTED the State's motion and the claim was dismissed for claimant's failure to appear for the scheduled trial and to prosecute the action (see Court of Claims Act § 19 ; 22 NYCRR § 206.15).
