The court correctly examined the proposed amended complaint to determine if there was evidentiary proof that could be considered on a summary judgment motion (see American Theatre for the Performing Arts, Inc. v Consolidated Credit Corp., 45 AD3d 506 ) and correctly determined that plaintiff failed to allege facts that would support a finding that defendants' conduct evinced a "conscious disregard of the rights of others or [was] so reckless as to amount to such disregard" (Home Ins. Co. v American Home Prods. Corp., 75 N.Y.2d 196, 200  [internal quotation marks and citation omitted]).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
