There was no evidence that defendant refused to obey an order for disclosure or wilfully failed to disclose information. Plaintiff declined the court's offer to submit interrogatories or to conduct a continued deposition of defendant. Accordingly, denial of the motion was a proper exercise of the court's discretion (Gross v Edmer Sanitary Supply Co., 201 AD2d 390 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
