APPELLATE TERM OF THE SUPREME COURT, FIRST DEPARTMENT
PRESENT: Lowe, III, P.J., Schoenfeld, Hunter, Jr., JJ
Judgment (Mitchell J. Danziger, J.), entered on or about September 30, 2010, affirmed, without costs.
The record establishes that the trial court applied the appropriate rules and principles of substantive law and accomplished "substantial justice" in awarding judgment in plaintiff's favor in this small claims action (see CCA 1804, 1807; Williams v Roper, 269 AD2d 125, 126 , lv dismissed 95 NY2d 898 ). The evidence, fairly interpreted, supports the trial court's express finding that the check issued by plaintiff represented a loan that defendant failed to repay. The record discloses no evidentiary error, and clearly none warranting reversal, under the narrow review standard governing here (see CCA 1807; see generally Ellis v Collegetown Plaza, LLC., 301 AD2d 758 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE COURT.
