PRESENT: PESCE, P.J., WESTON and RIOS, JJ
The order denied plaintiff's motion to vacate or modify a judgment entered pursuant to an arbitrator's award.
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs.
In this commercial claims action, an award was made in favor of Taconic Investment Partners, LLC following an arbitration hearing. Plaintiff appeals from an order of the Civil Court denying its motion to vacate or modify the judgment entered pursuant to the arbitrator's award.
A party that consents to the arbitration of a commercial claims action may move to vacate or modify the arbitrator's award only upon the grounds set forth in CPLR 7511 (b) and (c) (see Matter of Retina Assoc. of L.I., P.C. v Rosberger, 45 AD3d 690 ; Rockland County Dept. of Social Servs. v Rockland County Unit, Local 844, Civil Serv. Empls. Assn., 140 AD2d 441 ). In the case at bar, plaintiff did not establish any of these grounds. Consequently, the Civil Court properly denied plaintiff's motion to vacate or modify the arbitrator's award.
Accordingly, the order is affirmed.
Pesce, P.J., Weston and Rios, JJ., concur. Decision Date: October 16, 2012
