Since plaintiff's counsel's opening statement at trial was not part of the evidence, it did not "open the door" to conversations between the decedent and the judgment debtors herein, or otherwise constitute a waiver of the provisions of CPLR 4519, concerning the subject memorandum of agreement (see Matter of Wood, 52 NY2d 139 ; cf. Matter of Beradini, 238 App Div 433, 435 , affd 263 NY 627 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
