Decided on May 11, 2012
PRESENT: WESTON, J.P., PESCE and RIOS, JJ
The judgment, entered pursuant to the June 15, 2010 order granting defendant's motion for summary judgment, dismissed the complaint.
ORDERED that judgment is reversed, without costs, the order granting defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint is vacated and defendant's motion is denied.
In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, plaintiff appeals from an order of the Civil Court granting defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint. A judgment was subsequently entered, from which the appeal is deemed to have been taken (see CPLR 5501 [c]).
Defendant moved for summary judgment dismissing the complaint on the ground of lack of medical necessity. In opposition to the motion, plaintiff demonstrated that there was a triable issue of fact as to whether the supplies at issue were medically necessary (see generally Zuckerman v City of New York, 49 NY2d 557 ). Accordingly, the judgment is reversed, the order granting defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint is vacated and the motion is denied.
Weston, J.P., Pesce and Rios, JJ., concur.
