Order (Brenda S. Spears, J.), dated February 19, 2010, affirmed, without costs.

Civil Court providently exercised its discretion in denying tenant relief from her default in appearing for trial in this summary nonpayment proceeding. Tenant failed to show a reasonable excuse for her default and a meritorious defense to landlord's claim for rent arrears. Moreover, in the absence of good cause, the judgment and warrant should not be vacated (see RPAPL § 749[3]; NY City Hous. Auth. v Torres, 61 AD2d 681 [1978]; 1199 Hous. Corp. v Warren, 2003 NY Slip Op 51046[U] [2003]). THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE COURT. NOVEMBER 26, 2010 SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE TERM, FIRST DEPARTMENT November 2010 Term
