CPLR R. 3025

CPLR R. 3025 Amended and supplemental pleadings
(b) Amendments and supplemental pleadings by leave

Giunta's Meat Farms, Inc. v Pina Constr. Corp.

Generally, leave to amend a pleading pursuant to CPLR 3025(b) should be freely granted in the absence of prejudice or surprise resulting directly from the delay in seeking leave (see Rosicki, Rosicki & Assoc., P.C. v Cochems, 59 AD3d 512Janssen v Incorporated Vil. of Rockville Ctr., 59 AD3d 15, 27; Bennett v Long Is. Jewish Med. Ctr., 51 AD3d 959Lucido v Mancuso, 49 AD3d 220, 222, 227). Furthermore, a court should not examine the merits or legal sufficiency of the proposed amendment unless it is palpably insufficient or patently devoid of merit on its face (see Rosicki, Rosicki & Assoc., P.C. v Cochems, 59 AD3d at 514; Lucido v Mancuso, 49 AD3d at 227).
