On review, the Supreme Court (trial court) of New York, Oneida County recognized that the hearing officer at Green Haven didn’t take into account the fact that Reed had been found not guilty of the murder because of his mental condition in court. The Court then reversed the disciplinary action, holding the same to be unsupported by adequate evidence because evidence of Reed’s mental condition was not considered. See: NY ex rel. Reed v. Scully, 140 Misc, 2d 379, 531 N.Y.S. 2d 196 (1988).
