NEW YORK SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FOURTH DEPARTMENT
April 30, 2010
BRIAN POULSEN, RESPONDENT,
LIGHTHOUSE ASSEMBLY AT HIGH FALLS, APPELLANT.
Appeal from an order of the Supreme Court, Erie County (Timothy J. Drury, J.), entered March 27, 2009 in a personal injury action. The order denied the motion of defendant for a change of venue.
Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
As corrected through Wednesday, June 9, 2010
It is hereby ordered that the order so appealed from is unanimously affirmed without costs.
We conclude that Supreme Court properly denied defendant's motion for a change of venue of this action from Erie County to Monroe County. Defendant failed to meet its "burden of demonstrating that the convenience of material witnesses would be better served by the change" (Davis v Firman, 53 AD3d 1101, 1102  [internal quotation marks omitted]; see CPLR 510 ; Rochester Drug Coop., Inc. v Marcott Pharmacy N. Corp., 15 AD3d 899 ).
Present---Smith, J.P., Fahey, Carni, Sconiers and Pine, JJ.
