Dogwood Residential, LLC v Stable 49, Ltd., 2018 NY Slip Op 01574 [1st Dept 2018]
The court providently exercised its discretion in granting plaintiffs leave to reargue although they failed to comply with the requirement of CPLR 2221(f) that in a combined motion for reargument and renewal each item of relief be separately identified (see generally Corporan v Dennis, 117 AD3d 601 [1st Dept 2014]; see also GMAC Mtge., LLC v Spindelman, 136 AD3d 1366, 1367 [4th Dept 2016]). The court also providently exercised its discretion in considering a legal argument not expressly made by plaintiffs in opposition to defendant's motion, since the issue could not have been avoided if it had been raised at that stage (see generally Harrington v Smith, 138 AD3d 548 [1st Dept 2016]; see also Rochester v Quincy Mut. Fire Ins. Co., 10 AD3d 417, 418-419 [2d Dept 2004]).
