Headnote

The court considered an order from the Civil Court of the City of New York, which granted a defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint and denied the plaintiff's cross-motion for summary judgment. The main issue decided was whether the defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint should be denied. The holding of the case was that the defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint was denied, and the order was modified to reflect this decision.
