DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
The petitioner commenced this proceeding in an attempt to collect from the respondent a money judgment which the petitioner allegedly obtained against a nonparty, Kingswood Management, Inc. (hereinafter Kingswood), in 1997. Thereafter the petitioner moved for leave to enter a money judgment against the respondent in the sum of $42,000. The Supreme Court denied the motion. We affirm.
The record is devoid of any proof which would warrant the summary conclusion that the respondent is liable to the petitioner for the judgment which the petitioner allegedly obtained against Kingswood (see CPLR 5225[b]; Matter of Morris v New York State Dept. of Taxation & Fin., 82 NY2d 135, 141; Goldman v Chapman, 44 AD3d 938; Mistrulli v McFinnigan, Inc., 39 AD3d 606). Accordingly, the court properly denied the motion. The petitioner's remaining contention is without merit.
SANTUCCI, J.P., CHAMBERS, HALL and ROMAN, JJ., concur.
