The court of claims held that the state had violated Calhoun v. NY State Division of Parole Officers, 999 F.2d 647 (2nd Cir. 1993) which had held that the state cannot extend a prisoner's sentence beyond the maximum expiration date based on a claimed parole violation unless a final revocation hearing had been held. The court awarded Israel $5,500 in damages; finding he was unlawfully held 49 days past his release date. The court noted there was no showing of lost wages or special damages. Israel represented himself pro se in this case. See: Israel v. State of New York Court of Claims No. 94211 New York City. Source: NY Jury Verdict Reporter.
