There is no evidence in the record that defendant had actual notice of any defective condition in the desk that fell on and injured plaintiff, and defendant denied that it had received any complaints about the desk before plaintiff's injury occurred, thereby establishing that it also lacked constructive notice (see Galbreith v Torres, 9 AD3d 304 ; Peffers v Hilton Hotels Corp., 279 AD2d 386 ). Plaintiff presented no evidence that would raise an issue of fact.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
