IDA DE CESARE v. ROSA PALAZINI (10/17/68)

SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, THIRD DEPARTMENT


October 17, 1968

IDA DE CESARE, APPELLANT,
v.
ROSA PALAZINI, RESPONDENT

Gibson, P. J., Herlihy, Aulisi, Staley, Jr., and Gabrielli, JJ., concur in memorandum by Aulisi, J.

Author: Aulisi

Appeal from a judgment of the County Court of Schenectady County, in favor of de fendant, entered October 19, 1965, upon a decision of the court after a trial without a jury. In this action to recover against defendant maker on a promisory note, appellant contends that the trial court erred in admitting proof of an alteration of the instrument since defendant failed to allege the alteration as an affirmative defense in his answer. We do not agree. It is well settled that an alteration of a note may be shown under a general denial (Schwarz v. Oppold, 74 N. Y. 307; Starasvetsky v. Feldman, 208 App. Div. 792).

Disposition

Judgment affirmed, without costs.
