Mayer v Mayer

142A.D.3d 691, (2016)

Annette G. Hasapidis, South Salem, NY, for appellant.

Ostrer & Associates, P.C., Chester, NY (Benjamin Ostrer and Marissa Tuohy of counsel), for respondent Kristen M. Mayer.

Levi Lubarsky & Feigenbaum LLP, New York, NY (Richard F. Lubarsky of counsel), for respondents New York Life Insurance Company and New York Life Insurance and Annuity Corporation.

In an action, inter alia, to impose a constructive trust, the plaintiff appeals, as limited by her brief, from so much of (1) an order of the Supreme Court, Orange County (Onofry, J.), dated May 9, 2013, as granted that branch of her motion which was for summary judgment on the cause of action to impose a constructive trust only to the extent of imposing the trust upon proceeds of certain life insurance policies sufficient to satisfy her former husband’s child support and educational expense obligations, and (2) an order of the same court dated April 7, 2014, as, upon reargument, granted that branch of the motion of the defendant Kristen M. Mayer which was to reduce the value of the constructive trust by the proceeds the plaintiff received from a certain $100,000 life insurance policy, granted the motion of the defendants New York Life Insurance Company and New York Life Insurance and Annuity Corporation for summary judgment dismissing the amended complaint insofar as asserted against them, and adhered to its prior determination in the order dated May 9, 2013, with respect to that branch of her motion which was for summary judgment on the cause of action to impose a constructive trust.
