In 1973, an inmate at the New York City Correctional Institution for Men filed a lawsuit under Article 78 against the warden of the prison in the New York Supreme Court. The plaintiff alleged that he suffered a disciplinary deprivation of good time in violation of his due process rights.

On January 8, 1974, the Court (Judge Ernst H. Rosenberger) granted declaratory and injunctive relief to the plaintiff, holding that he had not been afforded the necessary due process when the defendants failed to present him with written notice of the charges against him prior to the disciplinary hearings. Bones v. Warden, NYC Correctional Institution for Men, 352 N.Y.S.2d 119 (Jan. 8, 1974). We have no further information on the proceedings in this case.
