Keita v. United Parcel Service

Decision Date11 August 2009
Docket Number2008-05041.
Citation2009 NY Slip Op 06165,884 N.Y.S.2d 139,65 A.D.3d 571
PartiesMOHAMED KEITA et al., Appellants, v. UNITED PARCEL SERVICE et al., Respondents.
CourtNew York Supreme Court — Appellate Division

Ordered that the appeal is dismissed, with one bill of costs.

In two decisions and orders on motion, dated December 24, 2008, and March 12, 2009, respectively, this Court directed the plaintiffs to serve and file a supplemental record containing, inter alia, the answers to the complaint and "the notice of motion and affidavits annexed thereto, answering affidavits, if any, and reply affidavits, if any, submitted in connection with the motion that resulted in the order being appealed." The plaintiffs have failed to do so.

It is the appellants' obligation to assemble a proper record on appeal (see Salem v Mott, 43 AD3d 397 [2007]; Cohen v Wallace & Minchenberg, 39 AD3d 689, 689 [2007]). In this regard, "[t]he record must contain all of the relevant papers that were before the Supreme Court" (Cohen v Wallace & Minchenberg, 39 AD3d 689 [2007]; see CPLR 5526; Matter of Allstate Ins. Co. v Vargas, 288 AD2d 309, 310 [2001]). Where, as here, meaningful appellate review of the Supreme Court's determination is made "virtually impossible" because of the incomplete nature of the record submitted, dismissal of the appeal is the appropriate disposition (Salem v Mott, 43 AD3d 397 [2007]).

RIVERA, J.P., FLORIO, BELEN and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
