PRESENT: Schoenfeld, J.P., Shulman, Torres, JJ
Judgment (Ruben A. Martino, J.), entered on or about June 18, 2009, affirmed, without costs.
The record and the ends of substantial justice (CCA 1804, 1807) support the judgment after trial in favor of plaintiff in this small claims action. Defendant has demonstrated no basis to disturb the court's credibility-based determination that defendant breached the parties' contract when she failed to reimburse plaintiff for an airline ticket that plaintiff purchased for defendant (see W.W.W. Associates, Inc. v Giancontieri, 77 NY2d 157, 163 ).
