Plaintiffs MSJ must say not denied within 30 days
In a recent case decided in Kings County, Judge Bluth held that plaintiff was not entitled to summary judgment as there was no averment in a supportive affidavit or similar paper that they claims were not denied within 30 days. In New York Craniofacial Care, P.C. v Allstate Ins. Co., plaintiff provided proof that the bill had not been paid and supportive affidavits included language to that end. They did not, however, include any mention that the claims were not denied within 30 days.
