General Construction Law applies (again)May 13, 2016

Tam Med. Supply Corp. v Citiwide Auto Leasing, 2016 NY Slip Op 50748(U)(App. Term 2d Dept. 2016)

“Contrary to plaintiff’s arguments on appeal, defendant established a proper practice and procedure of mailing of its denials (see St. Vincent’s Hosp. of Richmond v Government Empls. Ins. Co., 50 AD3d 1123 [2008]), and that the denials containing the requisite language had been timely mailed (see General Construction Law §§ 25, 25-a; VS Care Acupuncture v State Farm Mut. Auto. Ins. Co., 46 Misc 3d 141[A], 2015 NY Slip Op 50164[U] [App Term, 1st Dept 2015]; see also General Construction Law § 20 [providing, in pertinent part, that “[t]he day from which any specified period of time is reckoned shall be excluded in making the reckoning”]). Plaintiff’s remaining contention as to defendant’s cross motion lacks merit. Thus, we leave the granting of defendant’s cross motion undisturbed.”
