Practice point: The Appellate Division reversed the granting of the petition seeking to direct respondents to create, file and issue a birth certificate for petitioner's deceased grandfather, and dismissed the Article 78 proceeding.
Student note: New York City Health Code (24 RCNY) § 201.11(c) prohibits, among
other things, registering or issuing a delayed birth certificate for a
deceased person, and so there is no legal authority for granting the petition.
