New York Appellate Term of the Supreme Court Declines to Open Defendant Consumer's Default

In Oliphant Financial, LLC v. Leonidas (N.Y. Sup. App. Term 2011), the Supreme Court, Appellate Term affirmed a lower court order which denied a consumer's motion to vacate a judgment entered against her.

The underlying action was commenced when Oliphant Financial, LLC sought to recover $10,322.72 which was allegedly owed to Oliphant based on the consumer's default on a credit agreement. Oliphant moved for summary judgment, and the consumer failed to file written opposition to this motion. The Civil Court, Kings County, granted Oliphant's motion for summary judgment. When a judgment was entered against the consumer, she moved to vacate the judgment and the underlying order. The Civil Court denied her motion, and the consumer appealed its decision.

Because the consumer did not file written opposition to the motion for summary judgment, the Appellate Term of the Supreme Court considered the order as having been entered on default. Any oral arguments made on the motion were "unsworn and…of no evidentiary value." The Appellate Term thus treated the consumer's motion as one "seeking to open her default," and found that she failed to demonstrate a reasonable excuse for her default and a meritorious defense. Accordingly, the lower court order was affirmed.
