DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed insofar as appealed from, without costs or disbursements.
Following a hearing, the arbitrator directed the respondent to pay the petitioner "the maximum available SUM coverage up to $750,000." The Supreme Court correctly determined that the maximum available SUM coverage was $25,000. Accordingly, the Supreme Court, upon reargument, correctly granted that branch of the respondent's motion which was to vacate the arbitration award to the extent of reducing it to the sum of $25,000, and, in effect, denied the petition.
FISHER, J.P., DILLON, COVELLO and DICKERSON, JJ., concur.
