CPLR 3025 mere fact of exposure to greater liability not prejudicial

CPLR 3025

87 Chambers, LLC v 77 Reade, LLC, 2014 NY Slip Op 01123 [1st Dept. 2014]

Appellants' motion was timely filed and respondents have not shown that they would be prejudiced by granting appellants' leave to assert the new claims. Among other things, appellants are not prejudiced by the mere fact of exposure to potentially greater liability in the form of punitive damages (see Loomis v Civetta Corinno Constr. Corp., 54 NY2d 18, 23 [1981]; Letterman v Reddington, 278 AD2d 868 [4th Dept 2000]).
