In re New York Urban Development Corporation, etc., Petitioner-Respondent,
P.G. Singh Enterprises, LLC, et al., Respondents-Appellants.
Berkman, Henoch, Peterson, Peddy & Fenchel, P.C., Garden City (Daniel M. Lehmann of counsel), for appellants.
Carter Ledyard & Milburn LLP, New York (John R. Casolaro of counsel), for respondent.
Andrias, J.P., Friedman, Richter, Manzanet-Daniels, Feinman, JJ.
Orders, Supreme Court, New York County (Cynthia Kern, J.), entered February 28, 2013, which granted condemnees P.G. Singh Enterprises, LLC's and Parminder Kaur and Amanji Kaur's motions for an extension of time to file appraisal reports, on condition that the interest on their claims cease to accrue, unanimously affirmed, without costs.
The court did not abuse its discretion when it suspended the accrual of interest on the condemnees' claims during the extension of time they sought for the completion of their appraisal reports (see e.g. Abele v State of New York, 39 Misc.3d 1240 [A] [Ct Cl 2011]; see also Eminent Domain Procedure Law § 514[b]).
