PRESENT: PESCE, P.J., WESTON and SOLOMON, JJ
The judgment, after an inquest, dismissed the action.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs.
Plaintiff, a musician, commenced this small claims action to recover the sum of $300 allegedly due him for performing at defendant's premises. After an inquest, the Civil Court dismissed the action. Upon a review of the record, we find that the judgment provided the parties with substantial justice according to the rules and principles of substantive law (CCA 1804, 1807; see Ross v Friedman, 269 AD2d 584 ; Williams v Roper, 269 AD2d 125, 126 ), as the record supports the Civil Court's implicit determination that plaintiff's performance, at what was described to be an "audition," forms no basis to hold defendant liable to compensate plaintiff therefor.
Accordingly, the judgment is affirmed.
Pesce, P.J., Weston and Solomon, JJ., concur. Decision Date: March 21, 2013
