DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
The appellants failed to establish, prima facie, their entitlement to judgment as a matter of law. As the appellants failed to meet their prima facie burden, we need not consider the sufficiency of the plaintiff's opposition papers (see Winegrad v New York Univ. Med. Ctr., 64 NY2d 851, 853). Accordingly, the Supreme Court properly denied the appellants' motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint insofar as asserted against them.
FISHER, J.P., SANTUCCI, ANGIOLILLO and LOTT, JJ., concur.
