Bladykas v. Nassau

Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of New York, Second Department
Jan 15, 2008
848 N.Y.S.2d 901 (N.Y. App. Div. 2008)

Opinion

No. 2007-03803.

January 15, 2008.

In an action, inter alia, to recover damages for breach of contract, the defendant appeals, as limited by its brief, from so much of an order of the Supreme Court, Nassau County (Martin, J.), entered April 6, 2007, as denied that branch of its motion which was for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.

Lorna B. Goodman, County Attorney, Mineola, N.Y. (Karen Hutson of counsel), for appellant.

Thomas F. Liotti, Garden City, N.Y. (Lucia Maria Ciaravino of counsel), for respondent.

Before: Rivera, J.P., Spolzino, Carni and McCarthy, JJ.


Ordered that the order is affirmed insofar as appealed from, with costs.

The defendant failed to make a prima facie showing of entitlement to judgment as a matter of law since it did not tender sufficient evidence to demonstrate the absence of any material issues of fact ( see Alvarez v Prospect Hosp., 68 NY2d 320; Winegrad v New York Univ. Med. Ctr., 64 NY2d 851). Accordingly, the Supreme Court properly denied that branch of the defendant's motion which was for summary judgment dismissing the complaint ( see Alvarez v Prospect Hosp., 68 NY2d 320).

In reaching our determination herein, we have not considered evidence which is dehors the record with respect to the order appealed from ( see Juarbe v City of New York, 303 AD2d 462; Matter of Hogg v Cianciulli, 247 AD2d 474, 475; Gintell v Coleman, 136 AD2d 515, 516-517; see also Krzyanowski v Eveready Ins. Co., 28 AD3d 613 [2006]).

The defendant's remaining contentions are without merit.
