                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                The New York Court of Appeals has resolved that the OCFS did accurately calculate Yu's sentence, excluding his time served in incarceration for his other offense. See Huang v. Johnson, 96 N.Y.2d 599 ___ N.Y. S. 2d ___, ___ N.E.2d ___ (2001). Because the appellees did not improperly deny Yu any credit for time served, Huang's 42 U.S.C. 1983 claim must fail. We therefore affirm.
