ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
The Supreme Court providently exercised its discretion in denying the petitioner's motion to cancel the subject mechanic's lien (see Lien Law § 38; see generally J. Sackaris & Sons, Inc. v Terra Firma Constr. Mgt. & Gen. Contr., LLC, 14 AD3d 538, 541). Here, as noted by the Supreme Court, there is an action currently pending in the Supreme Court, Queens County, entitled Neptune Contracting & Environmental, Inc. v 2932 LLC, under Index No. 27444/08, in which the respondent herein interposed, inter alia, a cause of action to foreclose on the same mechanic's lien involved in the instant proceeding. Under these circumstances, we agree with the Supreme Court that cancellation of the lien is not warranted at this juncture. We note that our determination is without prejudice to either party raising issues regarding the lien in the pending action.
RIVERA, J.P., ANGIOLILLO, BALKIN and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
