570335/10 (N.Y. Misc. 2011)
570335/102011 N.Y. Slip Op. 50271

570335/10.

Decided February 25, 2011.

Landlord, as limited by its briefs, appeals from that portion of an order of the Civil Court of the City of New York, New York County (Jean T. Schneider, J.), entered March 1, 2010, which denied that branch of landlord's motion seeking disclosure in this summary holdover proceeding.

Order (Jean T. Schneider, J.), entered March 1, 2010, insofar as appealed from, affirmed, with $10 costs.

PRESENT: Schoenfeld, J.P., Shulman, Torres, JJ.


Petitioner-landlord failed to show "ample need" for the disclosure demanded in this summary eviction proceeding ( see New York Univ. v Farkas, 121 Misc 2d 643). We note, too, that "a trial court is vested with broad discretion to supervise the discovery process, and its determinations in that respect will not be disturbed in the absence of demonstrated abuse" ( Ulico Cas. Co. v Wilson, Elser, Moskowitz, Edelman Dicker, 1 AD3d 223, 224), a showing not made here.

THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE COURT.
