NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND MENTAL HYGIENE, ET AL., RESPONDENTS-RESPONDENTS.
Order and judgment (one paper), Supreme Court, New York County (Carol R. Edmead, J.), entered February 3, 2009, which denied petitioners' application pursuant to CPLR article 78 seeking, inter alia, to compel respondent Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) to take the necessary actions to provide petitioners with benefits of membership in the New York City Employees' Retirement System (NYCERS), and dismissed the petition, unanimously affirmed, without costs.
Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
Tom, J.P., Friedman, Catterson, Moskowitz, Richter, JJ.
The determination that petitioners are not entitled to retirement credit with NYCERS by reason of having worked for private corporations under contract with DHMH but paid with funds provided by the State is not arbitrary and capricious (see Matter of Eastman v Department of Citywide Admin. Servs., 266 AD2d 53 , citing definition of "city-service" in Administrative Code of City of NY § 13-101[a] as service "paid for by the city"]).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
