DECISION & ORDER

178 A.D.3d 647

ORDERED that the order is reversed, on the law, with costs, and the plaintiff's motion for summary judgment in lieu of complaint pursuant to CPLR 3213 is granted.

Following a trial on its claim for breach of a leasing agreement, the plaintiff obtained a judgment, dated October 24, 2017, from the Superior Court of California, County of Orange, awarding it the sum of $51,434.90 against the defendants jointly and severally. Subsequently, in an order dated December 21, 2017, the same court awarded the plaintiff, inter alia, $18,150 in attorney's fees. The plaintiff then commenced this action by motion for summary judgment in lieu of complaint pursuant to CPLR 3213 to enforce the judgment and

The plaintiff established its prima facie entitlement to judgment as a matter of law by submitting the judgment and the order, which obligated the defendants to pay the plaintiff certain amounts, and evidence that the defendants had not paid the amounts awarded therein (see CPLR 3213 ; Banco Popular N. Am. v. Victory Taxi Mgt. , 1 N.Y.3d 381, 383, 774 N.Y.S.2d 480, 806 N.E.2d 488 ; Loewenberg v. Basnight, 172 A.D.3d 1356, 1357, 99 N.Y.S.3d 661 ; Ahmad v. Luce, 147 A.D.3d 888, 46 N.Y.S.3d 805 ). In opposition, the...
