Building Serv. Local 32B-J Pension Fund v 101 Ltd. Partnership
Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
Decided on January 8, 2013
Tom, J.P., Andrias, Freedman, Roman, Gische, JJ.
Resettled order and judgment, Supreme Court, New York County (Melvin L. Schweitzer, J.), entered December 1, 2011, specifying the principal amount awarded and adding prejudgment interest to the principal amount, and order, same court and Justice, entered September 7, 2011, which granted plaintiffs tenants' motion for partial summary judgment with respect to their claim for certain revenue sharing proceeds owed by defendant landlord, unanimously affirmed, with costs.
The court properly granted plaintiffs' motion for partial summary judgment and issued a resettled order and judgment awarding plaintiff a specified amount, including prejudgment interest (see Trans World Maintenance Servs. v Luna Park Hous. Corp., 157 AD2d 586 [1st Dept 1990]). Giving proper effect to terms of the parties' lease precludes defendant from withholding the revenue sharing proceeds admittedly owed to plaintiffs for the purpose of applying those proceeds to offset the repair expenditures defendant purportedly made as a result of plaintiffs' alleged default on their obligation to make repairs and renovations to the building.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
