Personal Jurisdiction waived

CPLR 3211(e)
CPLR 320

Deutsche Bank Natl. Trust Co. v Ned, 2014 NY Slip Op 01122 [1st Dept. 2014]

In this mortgage foreclosure action, the motion court properly denied defendant's motion to dismiss the complaint on the ground of lack of jurisdiction. Defendant waived the defense of lack of personal jurisdiction since she failed to assert it in her answer and in the two prior motions she made (see CPLR 320; Ohio Sav. Bank v Munsey, 34 AD3d 659 [2d Dept 2006]). Although defendant is correct that the evidence of her physical description rebuts the presumption of proper service since it does not match the description provided by the process server, the court was not required to direct a traverse hearing since defendant waived this defense prior to alerting the court to the discrepancies.

Emphasis mine.
