This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
Gonzalez, P.J., Sweeny, Acosta, Renwick, Manzanet-Daniels, JJ.
Order, Supreme Court, Bronx County (Ben R. Barbato, J.), entered March 29, 2011, which granted defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint, unanimously affirmed, without costs.
Plaintiff's claim of personal injuries allegedly sustained as a result of a defective gas stove in his former apartment began to accrue, at the latest, on September 13, 2007, the date that he was diagnosed with carbon monoxide poisoning (see CPLR 214-c). Plaintiff's failure to serve defendant with a notice of claim within 90 days thereof requires dismissal of the complaint (see General Municipal Law § 50-e).
We have considered plaintiff's remaining arguments and find them unavailing.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
