PRESENT: PESCE, P.J., WESTON and RIOS, JJ
The order, insofar as appealed from, granted defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.
ORDERED that the appeal is dismissed.
In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, plaintiff appeals from so much of an order of the Civil Court as granted defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.
Subsequent to the entry of the order from which plaintiff appeals, plaintiff executed a release bearing the caption of the instant case as well as its index number, which stated that plaintiff released all claims "ever had, now have or hereafter can, shall or may, have for, upon or by reason of, an assignment of rights from [its assignor], insofar as the foregoing relates to the claims forming the object of the instant action." Inasmuch as the claims at issue on this appeal were interposed in plaintiff's complaint in this action, plaintiff voluntarily relinquished any right to recover upon these claims (see UCC 1-107).
Pesce, P.J., Weston and Rios, JJ., concur. Decision Date: January 14, 2013
