PRESENT: PESCE, P.J., RIOS and STEINHARDT, JJ
The judgment, after a non-jury trial, dismissed the complaint.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs.
After the trial of this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, the Civil Court granted defendant's motion for a directed verdict and dismissed the complaint. The court found that plaintiff had not established that the claim at issue was overdue, as the testimony of plaintiff's witness was not based upon personal knowledge. We agree. Accordingly, the judgment is affirmed.
Pesce, P.J., Rios and Steinhardt, JJ., concur.
