PRESENT: NICOLAI, P.J., MOLIA and IANNACCI, JJ
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs.
Plaintiff commenced this small claims action to recover the sum of $5,000 for damage to his property. The Town of Oyster Bay had hired defendant to provide storm drainage and roadway improvements to plaintiff's street. Plaintiff claimed that defendant damaged his property during the course of the work it had performed on behalf of the Town of Oyster Bay. Following a non-jury trial, the District Court awarded plaintiff the principal sum of $2,700.
Upon a review of the record, we find that the judgment provided the parties with substantial justice according to the rules and principles of substantive law (see UDCA 1804, 1807; Ross v Friedman, 269 AD2d 584 ; Williams v Roper, 269 AD2d 125, 126 ). Accordingly, the judgment is affirmed.
Nicolai, P.J., Molia and Iannacci, JJ., concur.
