AMENDED MEMORANDUM-DECISION AND ORDER
MAE A. D'AGOSTINO, District Judge.
Plaintiff brought this action pursuant to New York Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law ("RPAPL") section 1301 et seq, seeking to foreclose on a mortgage and obtain judgment on a separate promissory note. See Dkt. No. 39 at ¶ 1. On October 4, 2013 Plaintiff filed a motion to confirm the Referee's Report of Sale, and for leave to enter a deficiency judgment against Defendants Route 299 Retail Center, LLC ("Route 299"), Michael and Denise Barnett, and Highland Square Development, LLC ("Highland"). See Dkt. No. 105-3. In a Memorandum-Decision and Order dated July 2, 2014, the Court (1) granted Plaintiff's motion to confirm the Referee's Report of Sale, (2) stayed Plaintiff's motion for leave to file a deficiency judgment, and (3) ordered Plaintiff to submit evidence establishing the fair market value of the property within thirty days of the Court's Memorandum-Decision and Order. See Dkt. No. 110. On August 1, 2014, Plaintiff submitted its affirmation in further support of its motion to confirm the Report of Sale and for leave to enter deficiency judgment, in compliance with the Court's Memorandum-Decision and Order. See Dkt. No. 115.
Currently before the Court is Plaintiff's motion for leave to enter deficiency judgment. See Dkt. Nos. 105-3 and 115.
