On review, the Supreme Court of New York, Appellate Division, 3rd Dept. upheld the self-mutilation finding. It held that there was no timeliness problem because Colantonio’s hearing took place promptly after his return from special observation, and that since he admitted cutting himself the evidence was sufficient to find that he had done so. See: In the Matter of Colantonio v. Coughlin, 194 A.D. 2d 1015, 599 N.Y.S. 2d (1993).
