v.
CHARLES KYTE, APPELLANT.

Appeal from an order of the Civil Court of the City of New York, Kings County (Katherine A. Levine, J.), entered January 24, 2011.

Discover Bank v Kyte

Appellate Term, Second Department

Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.

This opinion is uncorrected and will not be published in the printed Official Reports.

Decided on March 5, 2012

PRESENT: PESCE, P.J., WESTON and RIOS, JJ

The order denied defendant's motion, in effect, to open a default.

ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs.

In this action to recover for breach of a credit card agreement and upon an account stated, defendant defaulted in appearing for trial and, thereafter, moved, in effect, to open his default. The Civil Court denied defendant's motion, finding that defendant had failed to demonstrate any basis to open the default.

In our view, the Civil Court did not improvidently exercise its discretion in denying defendant's motion since defendant failed to sufficiently demonstrate a reasonable excuse for his default and a meritorious defense to the action (see Eugene Di Lorenzo, Inc. v A.C. Dutton Lbr. Co., 67 NY2d 138 [1986]). Accordingly, the order is affirmed.

Pesce, P.J., Weston and Rios, JJ., concur. Decision Date: March 05, 2012
