2221(a) motion appropriate to deal with motion to vacate sua sponte orderFebruary 17, 2012

Tangalin v MTA Long Is. Bus, 2012 NY Slip Op 01239 (2d Dept. 2012)

“We agree with the appellants’ contention that the Supreme Court erroneously treated their motion to vacate so much of an order as directed them to produce certain portions of the Bus Operator Training Participant’s Guide of the defendant MTA Long Island Bus (hereinafter the Guide) as one for leave to reargue. Moreover, since that order was not appealable as of right because it did not decide a motion made on notice, it was procedurally proper for the appellant to move pursuant to CPLR 2221(a) to vacate the disputed portion of the order (see Mega Constr. Corp. v Benson Park Assoc., LLC, 60 AD3d 826, 827; Koczen v VMR Corp., 300 AD2d 285; Pagan v Penthouse Mfg. Co., 121 AD2d 374).”
