178 A.D.3d 462

Order, Supreme Court, New York County (Carol R. Edmead, J.), entered June 18, 2018, which, to the extent appealed from as limited by the briefs, denied defendants Leardon Boiler Works, Inc. and Rite Way Tank Maintenance Corp.'s motion to vacate a prior order imposing an adverse inference sanction against Leardon Boiler Works, Inc., and expanding the prior order to impose the same sanction against Rite Way Tank Maintenance Corp., unanimously affirmed, without costs.

A determination of sanctions pursuant to CPLR 3126 lies in the trial court's discretion, and defendants failed to show that the trial court abused its discretion in ordering an adverse inference instruction against them at trial ( CPLR 3126 ; Husovic v. Structure Tone, Inc. , 171 A.D.3d 559, 560, 96 N.Y.S.3d 859 [1st Dept. 2019] ). The fact that the documents requested by plaintiff may have been

produced by other parties does not excuse defendants' failure to produce them.

We have considered defendants' remaining contentions and find them unavailing.
