$510.00 Awarded In Prisoner Property Loss Suit

In 2000 the New York, Court of Claims awarded $510.00 to a prisoner at the
Wyoming Correctional Facility in New York for theft of his property. On
6/24/97 the prisoner's locker was broken into and his property stolen while
he was at sick call. He filed a Pro Se claim in the Court of Claims and
they ruled in his favor on 7/17/00 awarding him $510.00 only one third of
what he sought because he overstated the value of some items. See: William
Porter v. State of New York, Claim No.97810, Court of Claims Buffalo.
