PRESENT: RIOS, J.P., WESTON and GOLIA, JJ
The order denied plaintiff's motion to vacate a prior order granting defendant's unopposed motion for summary judgment.
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs.
In this action by a provider to recover assigned first party no-fault benefits, the Civil Court did not improvidently exercise its discretion in denying plaintiff's motion to vacate a prior order granting defendant's unopposed motion for summary judgment, since plaintiff failed to demonstrate a reasonable excuse for its failure to submit written opposition to defendant's motion (see CPLR 5015 [a] ; Eugene Di Lorenzo, Inc. v A.C. Dutton Lbr. Co., 67 NY2d 138, 141 ). Accordingly, the order is affirmed.
Rios, J.P., Weston and Golia, JJ., concur.
