CPLR R. 2103 Service of papers
CPLR § 2001 Mistakes, omissions, defects, and irregularities
Jones v LeFrance Leasing Ltd. Partnership, 2011 NY Slip Op 01441 (App. Div., 2nd 2011)
Contrary to Alliance's contention, the Supreme Court properly considered the plaintiffs' cross motion. Although the plaintiffs served their cross motion via media mail, as opposed to first class mail (see CPLR 2103), since Alliance opposed the cross motion on the merits, the defect in service was a mere irregularity that did not result in substantial prejudice to Alliance (see CPLR 2001; Piquette v City of New York, 4 AD3d 402, 403; see also Henry v Gutenplan, 197 AD2d 608).
