Decided on July 7, 2011
PRESENT: WESTON, J.P., PESCE and RIOS, JJ
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs.
Plaintiff commenced this small claims action seeking, in essence, restitution. After a non-jury trial, the Civil Court awarded plaintiff the principal sum of $1,500.
The facts adduced at the trial established that, pursuant to the terms of a settlement agreement, defendant was entitled to the sum of $5,000 and that plaintiff had subsequently overpaid defendant. Consequently, plaintiff was entitled to a refund. As defendant has failed to demonstrate that he was denied substantial justice according to the rules and principles of substantive law (CCA 1804, 1807; Ross v Friedman, 269 AD2d 584 ; Williams v Roper, 269 AD2d 125, 126 ), we find no basis to disturb the judgment. Accordingly, the judgment is affirmed.
Weston, J.P., Pesce and Rios, JJ., concur.
