Opinion

132 A.D.3d 643

In a consolidated action to recover damages for personal injuries, the plaintiff appeals, as limited by her brief, from so much of an order of the Supreme Court, Queens County (Taylor, J.), entered October 16, 2014, as granted the separate motions of the defendants Cyrus K. Rad and Kayhan Sarab pursuant to CPLR 3216 to dismiss the complaint insofar as asserted against each of them for failure to prosecute.

ORDERED that the order is reversed insofar as appealed from, on the law and in the exercise of discretion, with one bill of costs, and the separate motions of the defendants Cyrus K.

Co., 89 N.Y.2d 499, 504–505, 655 N.Y.S.2d 848, 678 N.E.2d 460 ). When served with a 90–day demand pursuant to CPLR 3216, it is incumbent upon a plaintiff to comply with the demand by filing a note of issue or by moving, before the default date, either...
