Deutsche Bank Natl. Trust Co. v Quinones, 2014 NY Slip Op 00959 [2nd Dept. 2014]
Here, the affidavit of service indicating that the respondent was served pursuant to CPLR 308(2) by delivery of the papers to a person of suitable age and discretion was insufficient on its face to establish, prima facie, that the respondent was validly served pursuant to that section. However, a second affidavit of service constituted prima facie evidence of proper service of the summons and complaint pursuant to CPLR 308(1) (see Reich v Redley, 96 AD3d 1038), and of proper service of the notice required by Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law § 1303 (see US Bank N.A. v Tate, 102 AD3d 859). The respondent's bare and unsubstantiated denial of service lacked the factual specificity and detail required to rebut the prima facie proof of proper service set forth in that affidavit of service (see ACT Props., LLC v Garcia, 102 AD3d 712, 713; Scarano v Scarano, 63 AD3d 716, 716-717).
