This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
ROBERT A. SPOLZINO, J.P., FRED T. SANTUCCI, DANIEL D. ANGIOLILLO and JOHN M. LEVENTHAL, JJ.
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
The appellants made a prima facie showing of their entitlement to judgment as a matter of law through the submission of the plaintiff's deposition testimony and the affirmation of their examining physician. However, in opposition, the plaintiff raised triable issues of fact. Accordingly, the appellants' motion for summary judgment was properly denied (see Alvarez v Prospect Hosp., 68 NY2d 320, 324).
SPOLZINO, J.P., SANTUCCI, ANGIOLILLO and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
