SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, THIRD DEPARTMENT
December 1, 1969
JOSEPH RICHARDSON, RESPONDENT,
WILLIAM MILLARD, APPELLANT, ET AL., DEFENDANT
Appeal from an order of the Supreme Court, Schenectady County, granting respondent's motion for permission to serve an amended complaint to add G. E. Van Vorst Co., Inc., as a party defendant in this action.
Reynolds, J. P. Reynolds, J. P., Staley, Jr., Greenblott, Cooke and Sweeney, JJ., concur in memorandum by Reynolds, J. P.
The instant appeal was taken by William H. Millard and not G. E. Van Vorst Co. Millard is not a party aggrieved within the meaning of CPLR 5511 by the order adding an additional defendant (7 Weinstein-Korn-Miller, N. Y. Civ. Prac., par. 5511.08). Accordingly, the appeal is improperly taken and must, therefore, be dismissed (Matter of Cannan, 278 App. Div. 742).
Appeal dismissed, without costs.
