Unsettled order fails to dismiss Civil Court actionDecember 28, 2015

Promed Orthocare Supply, Inc. v AIG Advantage Ins. Co., 2015 NY Slip Op 51886(U)(App. Term 2d Dept. 2015)

“Upon a review of the record, we find that since the March 2010 Supreme Court order in the declaratory judgment action merely granted the entry of a declaratory judgment, but failed to make a statement declaring the rights of the parties involved (see Hirsch v Lindor Realty Corp., 63 NY2d 878, 881 [1984]; Suburban Bindery Equip. Corp. v Boston Old Colony Ins. Co., 150 AD2d 767 [1989]; Metro Health Prods., Inc. v Nationwide Ins., 48 Misc 3d 85 [App Term, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2015]), the Supreme Court order cannot be considered a conclusive final determination and, thus, can have no preclusive effect in the instant no-fault action”

You know the order stated: motion granted, settled judgment.  Nothing else was decreed.  Defendant failed to settle a judgment and this is the result.
