V.S. Med. Servs., P.C. v Travelers Ins. Co.
2009 NY Slip Op 50048(U) (App. Term 2d Dept. 2009)

Plaintiff offered the testimony of its former employee and sought the admission of, inter alia, its purported claim forms into evidence. Defendant objected on the ground that said documents were hearsay and that plaintiff failed to lay a foundation for their admission pursuant to CPLR 4518.
