The Court reaches this decision by assuming, without deciding, that Supreme Court's order is appealable. Plaintiff had the burden of proving the facts as alleged (Lopp v Lopp, 191 App Div 500 ), even when there is a rebuttable presumption (St. Andrassy v Mooney, 262 NY 368, 371-372 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
