FREDERICA KURDILLA v. FRANCES SCHWARTZ (10/20/69)

SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, SECOND DEPARTMENT


October 20, 1969

FREDERICA KURDILLA, APPELLANT,
v.
FRANCES SCHWARTZ, RESPONDENT, ET AL., DEFENDANT

Appeal by plaintiff from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Nassau County, entered March 16, 1967 in favor of defendant Frances Schwartz upon a jury verdict.

Rabin, Acting P. J., Hopkins, Benjamin, Munder and Martuscello, JJ., concur.

It was error to admit into evidence a statement over the telephone to an insurance broker, allegedly made by a defendant who did not witness the accident, because the statement was a self-serving declaration which was hearsay and therefore was prejudicial to plaintiff (Johnson v. Lutz, 253 N. Y. 124; Williams v. Alexander, 309 N. Y. 283; Cox v. State of New York, 3 N.Y.2d 693).

Disposition

Judgment reversed, on the law, and new trial granted, with costs to abide the event. The findings of fact below are affirmed.
