Decided on January 14, 2011
PRESENT: Schoenfeld, J.P., Hunter, Jr., Torres, JJ
Respondent Michael White appeals from a final judgment of the Civil Court of the City of New York, New York County (Jean T. Schneider, J.), entered February 24, 2010, which, upon an order granting petitioner's motion for summary judgment, awarded possession to petitioner in a holdover summary proceeding.
Final judgment (Jean T. Schneider, J.), entered February 24, 2010, affirmed, without costs.
The New York City Housing Authority's administrative determination rejecting respondent Michael White's "remaining family member" claim is subject to judicial review only in a CPLR article 78 proceeding and cannot be collaterally attacked in a subsequent summary proceeding (see New York City Hous. Auth. v O'Connor, 18 Misc 3d 132[A], 2008 NY Slip Op 50081[U] ; West 95 Hous. Corp. v Baultwright, 2003 NY Slip Op 51262[U] ). Accordingly, Civil Court properly granted petitioner's motion for summary judgment.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE COURT.
