Decided on November 30, 2011
PRESENT: PESCE, P.J., WESTON and STEINHARDT, JJ
The order granted defendant's motion to dismiss the complaint.
ORDERED that the appeal is dismissed.
In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, defendant moved by order to show cause to dismiss the complaint pursuant to CPLR 3211 (a) (2) and to stay the trial pending resolution of the motion. The Civil Court granted a stay pending determination of the motion and, on the return date, the parties stipulated to a motion schedule with a new return date. As plaintiff submitted no papers in opposition to defendant's motion by the new return date, the order granting defendant's motion to dismiss the complaint must be deemed to have been entered upon default, from which no appeal lies by the defaulting party (CPLR 5511; see Benitez v Olson, 29 AD3d 503 ; Macik v Stutman, 21 Misc 3d 144[A], 2008 NY Slip Op 52469[U] [App Term, 2d & 11th Jud Dists 2008]). Accordingly, plaintiff's appeal is dismissed.
Pesce, P.J., Weston and Steinhardt, JJ., concur.
