Sufficient Start [3211(d)]

Robins v Procure Treatment Ctrs., Inc., 2018 NY Slip Op 00464 [1st Dept 2018]

Plaintiff made a "sufficient start" in establishing that New York courts have jurisdiction over PPM under CPLR 301 and 302(a)(1) to be entitled to disclosure pursuant to CPLR 3211(d) (see Peterson v Spartan Indus., 33 NY2d 463, 467 [1974]). With regard to general jurisdiction, codified in CPLR 301, it is not clear whether PPM's "affiliations with the State [New York] are so continuous and systematic as to render [it] essentially at home in the [] State" (Daimler AG v Bauman, __ US __, 134 S Ct 746, 761 [2014] [internal quotation marks omitted]). However, the record contains a State filing in which PPM identified itself as having a principal place of business in Manhattan — "tangible evidence" upon which to question PPM's claims to the contrary (see SNS Bank v Citibank, 7 AD3d 352, 354 [1st Dept 2004] [internal quotation marks omitted]).
