Albert Jacobs, LLP v Parker, 2012 NY Slip Op 02819 (2nd Dept., 2012)
"[A] written agreement that is complete, clear and unambiguous on its face must be enforced according to the plain meaning of its terms" (Greenfield v Philles Records, 98 NY2d 562, 569; see MHR Capital Partners LP v Presstek, Inc., 12 NY3d 640, 645). Here, the parties' written escrow agreement clearly enumerates certain conditions to the release of escrow funds. None of those conditions was met.
Altonen v Kmart of NY Holdings, Inc., 2012 NY Slip Op 02820 (2nd Dept., 2012)
The Supreme Court providently exercised its discretion in denying the defendants' cross motion to compel production of a confidential settlement agreement from certain prior personal injury actions unrelated to this action, as the settlement agreement is not material and necessary to their defense of this action (see CPLR 3101[a]; Allstate Ins. Co. v Belt Parkway Imaging, P.C., 70 AD3d 530; Matter of New York County Data Entry Worker Prod. Liab. Litig., 222 AD2d 381).
