3211(a)(7) standard

Leader v Steinway, Inc., 2020 NY Slip Op 01153 [2d Dept. 2020]

 “[T]he sole criterion [on such a motion] is whether the pleading states a cause of action, and if from its four corners factual allegations are discerned which taken together manifest any cause of action cognizable at law a motion for dismissal will fail” (Guggenheimer v Ginzburg, 43 NY2d 268, 275). The complaint must be construed liberally, the factual allegations deemed to be true, and the nonmoving party granted the benefit of every possible favorable inference (see Leon v Martinez, 84 NY2d at 87-88).
