OPINION ISSUED SEPTEMBER 8, 1999
DIVISION OF CORRECTIONS
Claimant appeared pro se.
Joy M. Cavallo, Assistant Attorney General, for respondent.
This claim was submitted for decision based upon the
allegations in the Notice of Claim and respondent's Answer.
Claimant seeks $5,317.08 for providing legal publications to
Mount Olive Correctional Complex, respondent's facility in Fayette
County. The documentation for these publications was not processed
for payment within the appropriate fiscal year; therefore, claimant
has not been paid. In its Answer, respondent admits the validity
of the claim as well as the amount, and states that there were
sufficient funds expired in the appropriate fiscal year from which
the invoices could have been paid.
Accordingly, the Court hereby makes an award to claimant in
the amount of $5,317.08.
Award of $5,317.08.
