IN RE: Jean Azor, petitioner, v. Patricia M. DiMango, etc., respondent.

2014–01765

Decided: May 14, 2014

WILLIAM F. MASTRO, J.P. JOHN M. LEVENTHAL CHERYL E. CHAMBERS LEONARD B. AUSTIN, JJ. Jean Azor, Marcy, N.Y., petitioner pro se. Eric T. Schneiderman, Attorney General, New York, N.Y. (Susan Anspach of counsel), for respondent.

DECISION, ORDER & JUDGMENT

Proceeding pursuant to CPLR article 78 in the nature of mandamus to compel the respondent, a Justice of the Supreme Court, Kings County, to resentence the petitioner under Kings County Indictment No. 11337/08, and application for poor person relief.

ORDERED that the application for poor person relief is granted to the extent that the filing fee imposed by CPLR 8022(b) is waived, and the application is otherwise denied;  and it is further,

ADJUDGED that the petition is denied and the proceeding is dismissed on the merits, without costs or disbursements.

The extraordinary remedy of mandamus will lie only to compel the performance of a ministerial act, and only when there exists a clear legal right to the relief sought (see Matter of Legal Aid Socy. of Sullivan County v Scheinman, 53 N.Y.2d 12, 16).   The petitioner has failed to demonstrate a clear legal right to the relief sought.

MASTRO, J.P., LEVENTHAL, CHAMBERS and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
