December 9, 2008

JOYCE BLIDGEN, ET AL., RESPONDENTS,

Appeal by the defendants from an order of the Supreme Court, Kings County (Schack, J.) dated June 29, 2007, which granted the plaintiffs' motion to, among other things, "[impose] a constructive trust on the property located at 639 East 28th Street, Brooklyn."

(Index No. 12548/07)

DECISION & ORDER

ORDERED that the order is reversed, on the law, with costs, and the plaintiffs' motion is denied.

The plaintiffs, in effect, sought summary judgment (see CPLR 3212) in connection with a claim based on a theory of constructive trust that had apparently never been pleaded in any complaint. The record contains no indication that any civil action or proceeding had ever been commenced (see CPLR 103[b]; 304). Accordingly, there being no pending action or proceeding, the defendants' motion should have been denied.

RIVERA, J.P., DILLON, COVELLO and McCARTHY, JJ., concur.
