Matter of Rigano v Vibar Constr., Inc.

Decided 9/30/15 by the Appellate Division: Second Department

Upon  remittitur from the Court of Appeals, the Court found that, upon re-argument, the Supreme Court should have granted Vibar Construction’s petition to amend the notice of lien nunc pro tunc and deny the petition to summarily discharge the lien.

The Court found that subject notice of lien was in substantial compliance with the requirements of the Lien Law and that no party would be prejudiced by the amendments.  The Court affirmed the ruling that, “in the absence of a defect upon the face of the notice of lien, any dispute regarding the validity of the lien must await trial of the foreclosure action.”
