Decision

Claimant, proceeding pro se, seeks damages for injuries allegedly sustained during the course of his incarceration at Marcy Correctional Facility.

Subsequent to the filing of this claim on November 5, 2015, claimant was released from prison. By Order dated January 23, 2020, claimant was directed to file and serve a Note of Issue and Certificate of Readiness for Trial on or before April 29, 2020. Claimant failed to timely file and serve the Note of Issue and Certificate of Readiness for Trial, and the Court therefore scheduled a telephone conference for June 30, 2020. Claimant failed to appear at the conference or otherwise communicate with the Court regarding his inability to do so. Given claimant's default in appearing at the conference, the claim is dismissed pursuant to Court of Claims Act 19 (3) and 22 NYCRR 206.10 (g).
