PRESENT: NICOLAI, P.J., MOLIA and IANNACCI, JJ
The order granted defendant's motion to vacate a default judgment.
ORDERED that the appeal is dismissed.
In this small claims action, plaintiffs appeal from an order granting defendant's motion to vacate a default judgment. Since the effect of the order is to require the parties to proceed to trial, the order does not constitute a denial of substantial justice and, therefore, is not appealable (see CCA 1807; Sporten v Davis, 31 Misc 3d 151[A], 2011 NY Slip Op 51122[U] [App Term, 9th & 10th Jud Dists 2011]; see also Feinstein v Lagios, 12 Misc 3d 128[A], 2006 NY Slip Op 50917[U] [App Term, 2d & 11th Jud Dists 2006]). Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed.
Nicolai, P.J., Molia and Iannacci, JJ., concur.
