This opinion is uncorrected and will not be published in the printed Official Reports.
Decided on March 29, 2013
PRESENT: RIOS, J.P., WESTON and ALIOTTA, JJ
The judgment, after a non-jury trial, awarded plaintiff the principal sum of $3,641.45.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs.
Plaintiff commenced this negligence action to recover for property damage to her automobile resulting from a collision. After a non-jury trial, the Civil Court awarded judgment in favor of plaintiff in the principal sum of $3,641.45.
The decision of a fact-finding court should not be disturbed upon appeal unless it is obvious that the court's conclusions could not be reached under any fair interpretation of the evidence (see Claridge Gardens v Menotti, 160 AD2d 544 ). In the case at bar, defendant Singh Sarbgit admitted at trial that defendants' car had backed into plaintiff's vehicle. As the record supports the Civil Court's determination, we find no reason to disturb the judgment.
Accordingly, the judgment is affirmed.
Rios, J.P., Weston and Aliotta, JJ., concur. Decision Date: March 29, 2013
