Stipulations: CPLR 2104

Grant v Almonte, 2019 NY Slip Op 00057 [1st Dept. 2019]

The requisite formality necessary to accord an oral agreement binding effect as an “open court” stipulation under CPLR 2104 was not present when, following a pre-trial conference at which an unidentified per diem attorney appeared for plaintiff, the matter was marked “settled” in the court’s records. There was no indication of the terms of the settlement, and the agreement was never further recorded, memorialized, or filed with the County Clerk (see Velazquez v St. Barnabas Hosp., 13 NY3d 894 [2009]; Andre-Long v Verizon 31 AD3d 353, 354 [2006]; compare Harrison v NYU Downtown Hosp., 117 AD3d 479 [1st Dept 2014]).
