PRESENT: NICOLAI, P.J., IANNACCI and LaSALLE, JJ
The judgment, insofar as appealed from, after a non-jury trial, awarded plaintiffs the principal sum of $1,465 as against defendant Long Island Rays, Inc.
ORDERED that the judgment, insofar as appealed from, is affirmed, without costs.
Plaintiffs commenced this small claims action against Long Island Rays, Inc., Jose Lebron, Jr. and Jose Lebron, Sr. to recover the sum of $2,920, representing payments they had made to defendant Long Island Rays, Inc., a not-for-profit children's baseball organization, of which their son had been a member. Defendant Long Island Rays, Inc. appeals from so much of a judgment, after a non-jury trial, as awarded plaintiffs the principal sum of $1,465 as against it.
Upon a review of the record, we find that the judgment in favor of plaintiffs as against defendant Long Island Rays, Inc. rendered substantial justice between the parties according to the rules and principles of substantive law (see UDCA 1804, 1807; Ross v Friedman, 269 AD2d 584 ; Williams v Roper, 269 AD2d 125, 126 ). Accordingly, the judgment, insofar as appealed from, is affirmed.
