Velazquez v. St. Barnabas Hospital

New York Court of Appeals


December 17, 2009

ANA VELAZQUEZ, APPELLANT,
v.
ST. BARNABAS HOSPITAL, RESPONDENT.

This memorandum is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the New York Reports.

MEMORANDUM

The order of the Appellate Division should be modified, without costs, by denying defendant's motion to enforce the settlement agreement and remitting the case to Supreme Court for further proceedings and, as so modified, affirmed.

The parties do not dispute that they agreed to settle the action for a specific amount; however, details regarding conditions of the settlement, including a disputed confidentiality agreement, were never recorded or memorialized. No agreement was made in open court or filed with the county clerk. Accordingly, it is not binding upon the parties (see CPLR 2104; Matter of Dolgin Eldert Corp., 31 NY2d 1, 9-11 [1972]; Andre-Long v Verizon Corp., 31 AD3d 353, 354 [2d Dept 2006]). On review of submissions pursuant to section 500.11 of the Rules, order modified, without costs, by denying defendant's motion to enforce the settlement agreement and remitting the case to Supreme Court, Bronx County, for further proceedings and, as so modified, affirmed, in a memorandum.

Chief Judge Lippman and Judges Ciparick, Graffeo, Read, Smith, Pigott and Jones concur.
