Decided on February 21, 2013
Mazzarelli, J.P., Friedman, Renwick, Freedman, JJ.
Order, Supreme Court, New York County (Saliann Scarpulla, J.), entered June 8, 2011, which, to the extent appealed from as limited by the briefs, granted the motion of defendant Matrix Construction Services, Inc. (Matrix) for summary judgment dismissing the Labor Law § 240(1) and § 241(6) claims as against it, unanimously affirmed, without costs.
The evidence establishes that Matrix was not a general contractor with supervisory authority and control over plaintiff's work. Accordingly, it cannot be held liable for plaintiff's injuries under Labor Law § 240(1) or § 241(6) (see Russin v Louis N. Picciano & Son, 54 NY2d 311 ; Aversano v JWH Contr., LLC, 37 AD3d 745 [2d Dept 2007]).
